Welcome to The Norfolk Forum Web Site

Chrysler HallFounded in 1933, the Norfolk Forum is the oldest publicly-subscribed speakers' forum in the country. Each year in Norfolk's Chrysler Hall, the Forum presents four, thought-provoking public figures that in different ways help shape American thought and opinion. After each presentation, speakers engage the audience in a question and answer session.

We are pleased to announce that the 2016-17 series will feature Barbara Corcoran, Tucker Carlson and James Carville, Chesley Sullenberger, III, General Stanley McChrystal. They will address topics as diverse as world affairs, public policy, education, and popular culture.

Tickets will be available for purchase by June 1, 2016. Please check back after that date.

We hope that you choose to join us for the 2016-2017 season of The Norfolk Forum. As we proudly claim, it's the best ticket in town.

J. Scott Adams, CCIM
