King’s Lynn Festival bringing film, concerts and coffee to town this spring





King’s Lynn Festival is kicking off 2024 with a spring series of events including coffee concerts, films, and a family concert.

The series begins in February with the first of four coffee concerts this spring.

On Friday, February 9, award-winning pianist Richard Zhang performs Beethoven’s expressive and technically demanding Opus 101 in a programme that also features Fauré’s tragic but beautiful Nocture and a virtuosic Partita by Bach.

The Coffee Concert series continues in March with performances on Friday, March 1, by Toby White (cello) and Ryan Drucker (piano), and on Friday, March 22, by Anna Im (violin) and Chiao-Ying Chang (piano).

Audiences can enjoy a cup of coffee and a slice of cake prior to each concert at Lynn Town Hall.

Children and their families are in for a special treat during the Easter holidays, with a Concerteenies musical story, based on Lily Murray and Richard Merritt’s award-winning story ‘The Dinosaur Department Store’, on Friday, April 5.

Including new music and classical repertoire, vibrant image projections, and loads of fun actions and songs to join in with, cellist Ashook Klouda and narrator Polly Ives guide youngsters aged 3-8 and their families on a marvellous magical tour of a dinosaur department store.

Refreshments and activities will be available alongside the event.

The Spring programme is completed by two films screened at Alive Cinema at the Corn Exchange – Mad About the Boy, an exploration of the life and work of Noel Coward (March 3) and Chevalier (April 21) based on the life of Joseph Bologne.

The Chevalier de Saint-Georges was a prolific 18th-century composer, master fencer, and violin virtuoso whose name has long been neglected in the Western classical music tradition.
