How we started..

In 2009 friends Anna and Sharon decided to organise a one-day music event. After researching and planning they set on publicising the festival with only 4 months of preparation. Little did they know the popularity it would generate. As the festival has grown over the years in 2014 we have brought together a team of 7 experts with experience and skills in festival and arts organisation.

We are please to welcome Tribe PR, Arts La’Olam, Sarah Corbett, Lara Williamson, Smithy, NT Graphic and Kay Southgate.


Tambai Community Projects

Tambai Community Projects is a volunteer organisation that shares specialist cultural events within Norfolk and the East of England. Southburgh Festival is our main event with more than 30 volunteers who come together to plan, organise and prepare the festival all year round. Great support comes from the audience who attend the festival in their hundreds including people from as far as Belgium, London, Scotland and Essex, as well as our beloved Norfolk. Artistic Director Anna Mudeka sees the festival as a way of bringing communities together through shared interests of music, food, friendship and good quality family time. It is her ambition to bring generations together in the heart of Norfolk to enjoy unique experiences that the wider world has to offer.
