West Norfolk residents are being invited to submit ‘selfies’ for a new light show coming to King’s Lynn.

As part of West Norfolk Council’s art link with Amiens in France, artist Halida Broughriet wants to involve local people with her installation.

The light displays at the town’s Custom House have become a popular attraction and now there are plans for further shows around the town.

The Minster, St Nicholas Chapel and Greyfriars Tower (pictured right) are among sites which could host similar events.

There will be a spring festival organised in conjunction with Amiens as part of a cultural exchange project which has been running for two years.

“This is a great opportunity for people to engage with the project and to become part of an art installation that will launch on March 27 and be shown throughout the year,” said council cabinet member Elizabeth Nockolds.

Filming will take place on February 11, 12 and 13.

Members of the public can submit two photographic selfies (self-portrait), one face-on and one in profile. Email them to by February 6 and the winners will be chosen at random.
