Community Groups

The Learning and Community team works with a huge range of groups both on and off site. We are passionate about getting people involved and helping you to make the most of your Norton Priory. From 9 months to 90 years old, we work with everyone and will tailor sessions to suit your group's needs and requirements. Just give us a call to discuss your ideas.
