Norwich Arts Centre, housed in the converted 14th-century church of St Swithun, has a lively programme of exhibitions and family events, but is also distinguished by a commitment to live performance, featuring touring bands and live comedy. The centre earned a small but notable place in rock history as being the venue where, in 1991, Manic Street Preacher Richey Edwards notoriously squicked out journalist Steve Lamacq by carving the words '4 REAL' into his own forearm. The centre has hosted many other bands and comedians, including Nirvana, Oasis, Coldplay, The Libertines, Mark Lamarr, Sue Perkins and Mark Thomas.
Norwich station is situated about 20 minutes away by foot, to the east of the city. Bus stops on nearby Westwick Street are served by routes 5, 28, 29, 29A, 29B and 29S.
