The two-week King’s Lynn Festival ends on Saturday with another busy day offering a variety of events – a film, a talk and a classical music concert.

Elvira Madigan, the biographical tragedy of the 19th century Danish tightrope dancer will be shown at St George’s Guildhall in partnership with King’s Lynn Community Cinema Club at 11am. Tickets for the 90 minute film are £5.

Walkers, sailors and swimmers will all be interested in an illustrated talk by best-selling author Tristan Gooley on the subject How to Read Water being staged at St George’s Guildhall at 3pm.

At the event, presented in association with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Tristan Gooley, will draw on stories of his pioneering journeys to explain how to spot the clues, signs and patterns in any kind of water.

Tickets are £10 (RGS-IBG members and under 18s £8) from the Corn Exchange box office on 01553764864 or visit www.kingslynnfestival.org.uk.

The last day of the Festival Exhibition in the Fermoy Gallery at the Arts Centre features works by colourist and draughtsman Alfred Cohen and Shakespeare Sculptures by Susan Bacon and is open 10am-4pm on Saturday.

Friday’s event, The Ronnie Scott’s Story at the Guildhall, was an early sell-out.
