Big C Office moves to Norwich Research Park

On May 9th Big C is moving from its city centre offices in 10a Castle Meadow which it bought in the 1990’s to the new Centrum building at the Norwich Research Park. 

The staff has outgrown the building and the new open plan offices are more cost-efficient with a variety of facilities and meeting spaces.

The move will position Norfolk and Waveney’s cancer charity among the research, healthcare and medical professionals that it works closely with and provide more opportunities for developing other partnerships to benefit the charity.

It will also give potentially greater access to funds held by national institutions and commercial organisations.

Why is Big C moving?
We have run out of space! With a growing team and organisational aims the current City Centre office is no longer fit for purpose. 

When are you moving?
Monday May 9 is the official moving in date. There may be a little disruption with telephones, so please bear with us. Our telephone number (01603 619900) will remain the same and our email address ( also remains the same. 

Why have you moved out of the City Centre?
Space on the Research Park where Big C has, and still is, funding research, facilities and equipment supports the aims of the charity moving forward 

There are good bus routes from the City Centre for  all visitors and parking facilities are available at Centrum

That sounds expensive. Is it costing more?
No, the move will be cost neutral. The funds that will be released from the City Centre asset will enable Big C to move to Centrum with no additional costs.

Centrum is state of the art standard for efficiency of resources, so more cost-effective in every day running charges.

Big C is continually reviewing its expenditure to ensure that its running costs are kept to a minimum. At least 70p in every £1 raised by our loyal and energetic supporters goes straight to benefit of cancer patients and their families in Norfolk & Waveney and our aim is to increase this figure year on year.

Do you welcome visitors?
Yes, visitors are welcome.

Which number bus do I take?
The number 11/12 (Pink Line) departs from City Centre stops going to the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. 

The number 26 (Blue Line) departs from City Centre stops going to the Norwich Research Park via University of East Anglia.

For timetables of services you can visit First Norwich

Has the telephone number changed?
No the number remains the same 01603 619900, as does the email address:

What is the new address?
Big C, Centrum, Norwich Research Park, Colney Lane, Norwich NR4 7UG

Where can I collect fundraising items?
Fundraising materials will be available from Centrum, or we can arrange for them to be mailed to you or to be collected from your local Big C shop.

Is there anywhere in Norwich where I can drop off my donations?
