The 2008 Punch Club meeting was hosted by Krishna Sethia in Norwich from 1 to 3 October.
There is no formal record of where members & their guests were accommodated, nor any record of the social programme for accompanying persons.

|THURSDAY 2 OCTOBER
|History of Norwich
|Dr Andrew Moore
|Norwich School of Arts
|Prof Trevor Davies
|Climate in the balance - can we stop it tipping?
|FRIDAY 3 OCTOBER

During the afternoon of 2 October, members and guests enjoyed a guided tour of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. This is one of the most prominent university art galleries in Britain, and a major national centre for the study and presentation of art. The Centre houses the extraordinary art collection of Robert and Lisa Sainsbury, as well as the Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau and the University’s Abstract and Constructivist Collection.
The black-tie Club dinner took place on the evening of 2 October at The Great Hospital, Norwich. This is a medieval hospital that has been serving the people of Norwich in Norfolk, England, since the 13th century. It is situated on a 7-acre site in a bend of the River Wensum to the north-east of Norwich Cathedral. Interestingly, it has the only surviving swan pit in Britain - the pit is designated as a "listed building" in its own right.
