Burney Day 19 July
The 200th anniversary of Burney’s death is being marked by a special Charles Burney Day on July 19 during this year's King’s Lynn Festival.
Musician and composer Dr Charles Burney was treated as a “pop idol” of the day when he lived and worked in King’s Lynn in the 18th century but his influence continues to underline the town’s position on the cultural map.
