Staff, pupils and parents from a West Norfolk primary school were invited into the splendour and history of Lynn’s town hall to receive a top national arts award.
The borough’s deputy mayor, Colin Manning, presented the Artsmark gold award to the Holly Meadows School in Pott Row in recognition of its work on culture and the arts.
The school’s choir performed during the evening, while the children also created a new silk painting to mark the occasion.
Artsmark is an Arts Council initiative which is designed to help schools evaluate and expand the artistic and cultural activities they offer to pupils.
Schools are assessed in many areas including arts in the curriculum, extra-curricular arts activities, how they work with artists and arts organisations and how well arts work impacts on staff development and the wider community.
