Lynn’s famous light shows will return on Thursday, January 7, after taking a break for the festive season.

Every evening from 5pm to 10pm, beautiful art installations light up six buildings around the town centre.

They were replaced by projections with a festive theme in November, as part of Lynn’s Christmas lights switch-on event, the Big Switch-on.

The original projections have been shown every evening since March as part of the Interreg IV funded cross-Channel Art, Cities and Landscape project between the West Norfolk Council and the Maison de la Culture d’Amiens. They were due to finish at the end of October, but have been extended due to their popularity.

The six light shows are: Waves, by Shantidas Riedacker and Dorian Rigal on St Nicholas’ Chapel; Ecosystem, by Guillaume LePoix and Thomas Daveluy on 1-3 Tuesday Market Place; Night Sailors, by Julia Dantonnet on the Custom House; Round of Clocks, by Amandine Meyer and Julia Dantonnet on Lynn Minster; Doing, undoing the tide, by Gaëtan Robillard on 18 New Conduit Street and Ephemeral Scenes of Lin, by Halida Boughriet on Greyfriars Tower.
