Abracadabra and hocus pocus ... is that the whiff of magic in the air as the first King’s Lynn Fairytales and Legends event comes into view?

On Sunday,families will be able to enjoy a huge range of free activities at venues across Lynn, including attempting to tame a dragon in the Vancouver Quarter shopping centre, joining in a sing-a-long with Snow Queen Elsa in Tuesday Market Place, challenging Robin Hood at archery at King’s Lynn Corn Exchange and enjoying Norwich Puppet Theatre’s production of Thumbelina at the Guildhall.

All activities are free of charge but booking is required in some instances. To see the full programme and to book, please visit

Elizabeth Nockolds, cabinet member for culture, heritage and health, said: “It is set to be a fantastic day and I would urge families to take a look at the event webpage, where they’ll find details of all the events, their locations and booking details, where applicable, so they can plan and get the most from the day.”

Activities take place from 10am-4pm and include activities for children as young as two. Children are invited to come dressed as characters from fairytales or legends. Maps showing the location of each activity will be available from Tuesday Market Place, the Tourist Information Centre and each of the participating venues on the day.
