King’s Lynn That’s Entertainment Andy Tyler rounds up events for all tastes week beginning Friday, June 16





With the very warm weather and heated atmosphere politically, it is certainly appropriate to take things steadily, relax, and find some time for quality entertainment always available in West Norfolk.

If you are into Motown see if tickets are still available at Alive West Norfolk’s Corn Exchange for a brand-new Reach Out spectacular entitled the Magic Of Motown, on-stage tomorrow night at 7.30pm.

Then on Tuesday, the McCartney Songbook, featuring some of the greatest pop songs ever, and then for some comedy the Comedy Club is presented on Thursday, doors opening at 7pm with comedy from 8pm.

Tickets available by contacting the box office on 01553 764864.

More details on the Alive website, but be assured there’s something for everyone.

Over at Hunstanton’s Princess Theatre tomorrow we’re promised an evening of burlesque which should include laughter, cabaret, mystery and glamour.

The Norfolk Symphony Orchestra should end their current season with a concert to delight all classical music fans. The place to be for such an enjoyable event is St. Nicholas’ Chapel, Lynn, 3.30pm this Sunday, the music will be by Mozart, Haydn, Dvorak and Saint- Saens.

The concertos to be performed will be Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto and Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto, both delightful pieces. To book call 01553 764864. Free tickets may still be available for young concert goers.

Singing with a choir or in a group is considered a highly enjoyable activity, as well as being good for one’s physical and mental health.

Free, drop-in singing workshops for anyone aged 18 and over are held at the Methodist Church Rooms, London Road, Lynn, on occasional Thursdays between 2pm and 3.30pm.

The next session will be held on July 6. You don’t have to book, just turn up if interested.

There is always something special to view at True’s Yard fisherfolk exhibition, and I give advance notice of its third summer art exhibition by Lord Nicholas True. Varied portraits by well-known local artists since 1850 will be featured including Walter Dexter.

The exhibition will be open from 1pm on Friday, July 7.

The Lynn Society of Arts and Sciences is taking its summer break but will be back holding talks in the autumn.

The society’s AGM and first meeting takes place on Tuesday, October, 10. Meetings take place in the ballroom of the Duke’s Head Hotel, with doors opening at 6.45pm and the meeting starting at 7.30pm. A bar is also open. More details to follow.

My book recommendation of the week is another of the Reverend Richard Coles’ Canon Clement mysteries, entitled A Death In The Parish. A controversial figure, Richard Coles seems to have made a success of his recent literary career. The new novel should be available currently.

Although I have no movie recommendation this week I did attend a streaming of Mozart’s operatic masterpiece The Magic Flute from the Met, New York, and I do recommend readers to make a visit to your local cinema and choose a streaming that appeals.

Verdi’s Il Trovatore is due to be repeated this coming Sunday. Live streaming from popular theatres is also presented.

Lastly, don’t forget that summer fair at Gaywood Church Rooms tomorrow.
