Traditionally, Norpas has recovered from the intense experiences of the weekend by gathering on Sunday for a time of celebration around nature, art and a shared meal. Now, the closing celebrations will be marked by the choice of venues, from which you can choose the lunch spot where the art will come to you. Read more about Sunday's programme here.
