Beacons were also lit up across the area last night as part of the celebrations.

Children at Brancaster School joined in the celebrations by dressing up princes, princesses, kings and queens.

The 41 children joined in the celebration.

Deputy head teacher Keith Twaites said: “The children always enjoy dressing up and it was so nice to see so many colourful outfits.”

An exhibition of royal photographs was launched yesterday at the Custom House and will run until Sunday, June 12.

Staff at Lynn’s Tourist Information Centre have organised two sets of photographs entitled “The Queen in West Norfolk” and “All the Queen’s Houses”.

A photographic tour of some of the Queen’s most famous residents will be on offer.

Assistant Tourist Information Centre Officer Karen Cooke said: “We’ve put together this exhibition as a way of joining the celebrations of this unprecedented occasion.

“During her long reign the Queen has had a special connection with West Norfolk, and these photographs are a wonderful way to look back at all the visits she’s made and all the people she’s met, in this area”.

The exhibition will be open Mondays to Saturdays from 10am to 4.30pm, and on Sundays from noon until 4.30pm. Admission is £1 for adults and 50p for children.

West Norfolk Council will also be celebrating the Queen’s birthday by putting on a 1920’s day on June 12.
