King’s Lynn takes on a French flavour tomorrow in the form of La Grande Fete de Lynn.

Saturday will see entertainment and activities which will celebrate the culmination of a West Norfolk council two-year Art, Cities and Landscape project with Amiens in France.

The aim is to attract people to the town centre to enjoy the new gardens and public artworks that have been created as part of the project.

Council leader Nick Daubney said: “This has been a mutually beneficial project which has attracted a significant amount of European funding.

“I do hope people will visit the town to take a look at the new artworks and gardens that have been installed by our colleagues from Amiens and to enjoy the music, street entertainment and  street performances.”

Parking in the council-run car parks is £1 after 1pm on the day. The entertainment and attractions will be at a variety of  locations. See pages 42 and 43 in our special feature for more information.

An architectural projections light show starts from 10pm at the Custom House.

This has been inspired by past intrepid sailors who made world discoveries.

A continental market is currently providing a taste of Europe at New Conduit Street and Baxters Plain with products and produce.
