The arts organisation behind previous light spectacular projects in King’s Lynn is launching another ambitious public art display across the town.

Collusion, which delivers dynamic and imaginative experiences for the public, is revealing images in town centre venues of its new Intergalactic Hanseatic League spectacle.

The space age-themed project will see time travellers from the 23rd century make contact with 21st century Lynn with Game of Thrones actress Kate Dickie at the captain’s helm.

The science-fiction narrative casts the people of Lynn as heroes of the future who saved the world from climate change in 2021, leading to a healthy, thriving planet centuries later.

“Transmissions” will appear on the Majestic and Corn Exchange cinema screens, and installations created by 571 of the town’s schoolchildren  will appear in windows of the former Argos store in the Vancouver Centre.

The organisers have also said screens in high street shops will flicker to life with the story.

On Friday, October 1, the project will light-up the town’s major sites of the Custom House, Minster, Greyfriars Tower, St Nicholas’ Chapel, and the Corn Exchange  with what has been described as “spectacular large-scale projections” including an interactive game and sound-and-light installation at Greyfriars Tower and gardens. The projections will remain until October 17.
