A Walk for Jim will be held on Wednesday, February 15, for members of the public who want to pay tribute to street entertainer, Juggling Jim.
The King’s Lynn town centre busker, whose real name was Anthony Bowen, died aged 62 on January 23 and his funeral will take place at Lynn Minster at 12.30pm.
Local entertainer Sally Beadle (alias Crazy Bananas) is organising a memorial walk from the High Street to the Saturday Market Place Minster.
The procession will assemble near the benches outside McDonald’s at noon.
“Jim’s friends will lead the procession passed his busking spot followed by anyone who wishes to pay their respects.
“Moving off at 12.15pm and arriving at The Minster at 12.30pm to lead the coffin into the church,” said Ms Beadle.
Mr Bowen often wore a Santa hat and members of the procession are encouraged to wear one, along with any costumes and bring props or other tributes in keeping with Mr Bowen.
“Any props should be kept small and taken away after the service,” said Ms Beadle, who set up a tribute shine and a cash collection in the days after Mr Bowen’s death.
Family funeral directors A J Coggles also has a book of tributes for the public to write in from noon to 4pm tomorrow at its premises at 1 Blackfriars Road in Lynn.
The book will be placed in Mr Bowen’s coffin prior to the funeral.
A collection for mental health charity, West Norfolk Mind, will be held at the service which will be followed by a private burial at Gayton churchyard.
His town centre shrine is now inside the benches at New Conduit Street.
