PEACH West Norfolk

A Partnership for Education, Arts, Culture and Heritage across the borough of West Norfolk


PEACH West Norfolk is one of 90+ ‘Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs)’ across England set up to improve the alignment of cultural education for young people as part of The Cultural Education Challenge launched by Arts Council England in partnership with the Department for Education.


An LCEP is a network of arts and cultural organisations, creative professionals, educators and others who are interested in and committed to radically enhancing the cultural education provision and opportunities for children and young people in particular areas. In this region, LCEP development is led by Festival Bridge who channel Arts Council investment and expertise to nine groups across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Peterborough & Suffolk.


Here at Creative Arts East, we are the lead organisation for PEACH West Norfolk, and our Executive Director, Natalie Jode, acts as the Chair.


PEACH West Norfolk operates against an Outcomes Framework and against a Terms of Reference. Meetings take place every few months and are open to all. They enable networking between representatives and exist to develop and evolve the strategic and practical work of the cultural education partnership as a whole and of its individual contributors.
