The Easter weekend is now upon us and naturally there’s lot’s to enjoy and look forward to in West Norfolk so let’s make a start straight away and by the way, a very Happy Easter to all readers!
I am assuming the weather is going to be grand so I feature quite a few outside events and venues this week, starting with Snettisham Park , the Deer Safari Park and Farming Attraction , which opens daily 10am-5pm . There is much on offer at the park to enjoy, including pony rides and hacks ( the hacks should be pre-booked), a variety of trails , and , of course, The magical deer safari, and the fascinating farmyard . For details of all that’s going on visit www.snettishampark.co.uk or phone 01485 542425
I’ve no doubt Easter Egg Trails will feature in many family’s programmes this Easter Holiday and there’s certainly not space enough available here to list them all, but I will mention some of the locations where they are going ahead: Outside The Minster , King’s Lynn 1-5pm tomorrow, Holkham Hall (over this weekend), Peckover House and Gardens, (this weekend), Oxburgh Hall( this weekend) and The Lion’s Club, Hunstanton town centre (tomorrow , 9am-2pm), well, I hope there’s enough venues listed to give you an idea where to discover some of those hidden Easter Eggs!
Before we go back for inside entertainment I notice there will be public Morris dancing on Easter Monday at Hunstanton Town Centre and don’t forget the KLFM Battle of the Bands Competition, live, also in Hunstanton Centre on Monday.
I understand there are popular and friendly salsa classes held regularly at Reffley Community Hall, Lynn, on a Wednesday evening, catering for beginners and more experienced dancers alike ; sessions last between 7.30 and 9.30pm. I think the classes can count as my ‘club of the week’ as it sounds as if there is a great opportunity for participants to make friends and enjoy other related activities. Do take a look at the Secret Salsa website (perhaps not so secret now), or contact Mark on 07863 291074.
I enjoyed spending some time at a recent fete held at St John’s Church, King’s Lynn on a beautiful afternoon and it reminded me to mention the various concerts and events taking place at that church and a superb guitar recital coming up at All Saint’s Church, Lynn at 3.30pm on Sunday, April, 23. Estevao Devides is the artist.
A possible future candidate for my ‘club of the week’ is a group which has not yet met. King’s Lynn Poetry Appreciation Group, For the Love of It. This exciting venture will start to meet on the first Saturday of each month between 2 and 4pm at “Marriott’s Warehouse’” , South Quay. The first meeting will be on Saturday, June, 3. Entrance is £3. There are lots of ideas for the group to enjoy in the future and refreshments will be available, so do contact Andee on 01553 773047 or 07739237486 for details.
The King’s Lynn Male Voice Choir is performing next at Gayton Church, on Saturday, April 22, which should be excellent, but don’t forget copies of the book recording the first 50 years of the choir is available to buy at True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum, £5.
I viewed one of the best exhibitions I have seen recently entitled Circles, which was held at Greyfriars Art Space, St James’s Street, Lynn, so I look forward to visiting the gallery for their next offering: Nature Nurture, an inspiring exhibition by Ann Froshaug , daily 10am-4pm from Saturday , April, 22.
Don’t forget the KLOD’s production of Hairspray – The Musical starting next Wednesday.
