Our Coffee Concerts are back - in time to make a St Valentine's gift

Even if you don't want to give a gift for the day of hearts and flowers, you can still book tickets for our first Coffee Concert of the year on February 28.

Award-winning pianist Churen Li will present a programme including pieces from Mozart, Ravel and Liszt as well as her own composition at King's Lynn's historic Town Hall where coffee or tea and cakes will be served from 10.30am.

The concerts are a great way to engage with beautiful music in a slightly less formal setting than a full-blown concert and they are among the most popular of our events, so don't leave it to the last minute either for yourself or for a gift.

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 fascinating talk presented by the Royal Geographical Society.

There will be another Coffee Concert at the Town Hall on Friday, April 3 when Benson Wilson and Lucy Colquhoun come to town.

The winner of last year's Kathleen Ferrier Award, Benson Wilson (baritone) joins with award-winning pianist Lucy Colquhoun who took all the major accompaniment prizes at the Royal College of Music where she studied. 

If you can't make a Coffee Concert, 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.

Tickets are on sale now and further information can be found on our  website.
