The New Year is well and truly with us and everyone at King's Lynn Festival is looking forward to celebrating our 70th anniversary.
We have been bringing the finest musicians and performers to West Norfolk from the very first festival and we continue in that fine tradition this year, with both familiar faces and premiere pieces from July 19 to August 1.
Our events are not confined to the main Festival as we run a year-round programme in and around King's Lynn and the finishing touches are being put to the first of our 2020 events.
The programme will start with one of our popular Coffee Concerts on February 28 at King's Lynn Town Hall when pianist Churen Li will present a programme including pieces from Mozart, Ravel and Liszt as well as her own composition.
March 13 sees us screening the 2018 film The White Crow at St George's Guildhall with the King's Lynn Community Cinema Club and later the same day Polar explorer Felicity Aston MBE will be giving a talk presented by the Royal Geographical Society.
Looking further ahead, March 27 will find us at St George's Guildhall for a screening of the English National Opera Live and The Mikado, a revival of the Jonathan Miller classic production. The evening film will be presented by The Lucky Dog Picturehouse Silent Film with Music and will be Piccadilly - a 1929 classic with Anna May Wong.
There is plenty to choose from and the details are below and can also be found on our website.
