Sangha Activities

Forthcoming events

The next Sangha Stroll will take place on Sunday 8th July and it’ll be a new route, along the River Wensum. We’ll meet at 2.00pm, at Capitol House, Heigham Street, near Barn Road. (Parking is without restriction on Heigham Street on Sundays, or else pay-and-display parking is available in nearby Westwick Street Car Park.) We’ll walk to the cathedral and back and we’ll enjoy halfway refreshments at the cathedral refectory. All Sangha members, friends and family are welcome. For more information, please email Ian at

Recent events

The inaugural Sangha Stroll happened on Saturday 11th November. Four Sangha members enjoyed an hour-long stroll through Earlham Park and around UEA Lake on a glorious, crisp, sunny autumn afternoon. The stroll was followed by a short browse of the free collection at the Sainsbury Centre and concluded with a well-earned hot drink at the Cafe.

Sangha members enjoying the first Stroll

A group of us had an enjoyable evening on Friday 10th November, when we went together to view a photography exhibition on ‘Meditation’ by one of our Sangha, at Studio 20 in Norwich – it featured portraits of all sorts of people meditating in all sorts of spaces (including photos taken of members of our Sangha). The exhibition can now be viewed online

About Sangha activities

Sangha activities can be planned and organised by any member of the Norwich Zen Buddhist Priory Sangha. Generally, they are open to all members of the Sangha, their family and friends and organised around the Priory’s calendar, where possible. There is a board for notices about Sangha activities in the hallway of the Priory, and they can also be added to this web page. The notices should contain all the relevant information, such as dates, times, meeting places, cost (if any) and if any arrangements are being made to share lifts, etc.

Our Sangha activities generally fit in with the interests of a Buddhist Sangha and it is helpful to discuss ideas with other Sangha members or the Prior ahead of time.
