In its second year, Noirwich took place 17–20 September. 

The Noirwich Crime Writing Festival celebrates the sharpest noir and crime writing over several days of author events, film screenings and writing masterclasses in Norwich, UNESCO City of Literature. From big events featuring the likes of Lee Child and Andy McNab, to specially developed crime writing masterclasses with Laura Wilson and Colette McBeth, there is something for every reader and writer of crime.

The inaugural event  launched on 10 September, 2014.

We all laughed when Noirwich was first suggested, thinking ‘oh no’ but then it grows on you and it soon became ‘oh yes’. It’s fantastic. People won’t forget it.
