Charity acts light up King's Lynn music scene

An open mic night helped emerging musical talent to share their work with the public, while also raising funds for the homeless in Lynn.

In front of a sold-out venue, a group of local musicians got together at the Duke’s Head Hotel on Saturday to raise money for the Purfleet Trust, writes Jon Seymour.

The amount of talent on show during the day was undeniable, and with headliners The Extons having had such a great 2019, it’s possible this was the last time they will be seen in their hometown for a while.

Also currently making waves are Tom Lumley and the Brave Liaison, whose recent single is enjoying airplay on major radio stations, including Radio One.

Organisers hope this to become a regular occurrence in the Lynn music calendar.

There were acoustic acts playing in the foyer during changeovers to keep the Duke’s Head crowd entertained the whole day through.

It was well organised, and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, and with such a variety of acts, there really was something for everyone.

The next event will again be taking place at the Duke’s Head on April 11. Tickets cost £10 and are available at http://twistedmelon.bigcartel.com/product/tm02
