King’s Lynn’s festival extravaganza will enjoy reduced parking charges and international acts coming to town.

Lynn will  be hosting stars from the world of classical and pop music as both the festival and Festival Too hit West Norfolk.

West Norfolk Council has announced that parking charges on its car parks will be reduced to £1 after 1pm for six days – including tomorrow.

This month will be packed with events as the links with Amiens in France will also be marked as part of a cultural programme with public art.

“I do hope people will visit the town, support the markets and local shops, take a look at the new artworks and gardens and enjoy the music and street entertainment,” said West Norfolk Council leader Nick Daubney.

Festival Too will provide town centre street entertainment as well as the Tuesday Market Place concerts over the first two weekends of July.

Young musicians from the borough will line-up alongside top international stars for the four concert nights.

With no time to pause for breath, Lynn Festival will begin and it opens on Sunday, July 13 with the prize-winning Fairey Band making its first visit to the town.

The festival runs until July 26 and includes a range of classical concerts, recitals and exhibitions at a variety of venues around Lynn.

Thousands of people flock to the town each year for the two festivals and this year, on July 19, ther will be a Grandes Fete Du Lynn featuring French street performers and a continental market in the town.

Around the World in 80 dishes will complement events and is being held on July 20.
