John Innes Centre Conference Centre

Norwich Chamber Music concerts take place at the John Innes Centre (JIC) Conference Centre, a modern, 320-seat auditorium ideally suited to chamber music acoustics, with comfortable seats and excellent sight lines.

All seats are unreserved. The auditorium opens 30 minutes before the start of the concert.

Accessibility / special needs

The route from the car park through to the auditorium is wheelchair accessible.

Those with wheelchair requirements or mobility difficulties are asked to contact us in advance at A free carer’s ticket may be obtained when booking online.


We naturally observe the John Innes Centre's regulations in relation to Covid-19. These include the wearing of masks in the concert hall and when moving around, observing one-way markers, and willingness to confirm double vaccination or a recent negative test result on request.


The Centre is located within Norwich Research Park, Colney Lane, on the western side of the city near the University of East Anglia campus and Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.
