A special celebration day is being held at Lynn Arts Centre on Saturday – and local folk are warmly invited to go along.

There was sadness at the end of December last year when the King’s Lynn Arts Centre Trust closed its doors after four years of successful projects, exhibitions and performances.

At the time it was stated that KLACT would be shutting part of the site as it was “no longer financially viable” due to a decline in funding. However the closure does not affect St George’s Guildhall (where Yeomen of the Guard is being staged next week), Crofters Coffee House and Riverside Restaurant.

But on Saturday, from 11am to 6pm, the successes of the Arts Centre – and to mark the end of a 60-year-long cultural adventure on the site – a celebration programme has been arranged. It will include:

An exhibition reflecting the history of the Arts Centre in the Fermoy Gallery and Shakespeare Barn;

Cinematic footage of Arts Centre events through the years in the Red Barn;

A photo exhibition by Italian volunteer Alessio Graldi about the Transform project in the Old Warehouse;

An opportunity to leave your comments, drawings, doodles and photos about what the King’s Lynn Arts Centre Trust has meant to you in the comments book, etc.
