Adrian came to King's Lynn as the Borough Council’s planning director, after university at Cambridge and Cardiff and a career in London, Hampshire and Suffolk.  By chance he arrived as the Festival opened in 1986, and he went to a Grimethorpe Colliery band concert.  He joined the Board in 2010, was made a Vice-chairman in 2013, and elected Chairman in 2023.

The Festival is a significant regional event, and has a year-round programme which encourages other Arts groups in West Norfolk. The quality of classical music on offer was established by Lady Fermoy in the 1950s, and now we aim to bring the best of all kinds of music, and to extend the range of educational activities.
