The Forum is a popular community center and a meeting place for people in the area. It is a hub of activity with frequent music performances, art exhibitions, processions, rallies and other events taking place. It houses the Norwich Tourist information center, the local BBC offices and a fantastic library called The Millennium which has been voted as UK's favorite library for seven consecutive years according to its website. There are also eateries located at the venue such as Pizza Express and the Cafe and Bar Marzano which makes it popular among families, adults and teenagers alike. There are also rental spaces available at the venue for business meetings and conferences. Outside the venue, there are local BMX bikers and skateboarders who use the outside promenade to show off their skills to the large crowd that gathers here. The forum is able to hosts these events and still be free to the public as it is run by a local charity.
