New record club set to start at King’s Lynn library

In his weekly That’s Entertainment column, Andy Tyler looks at the local arts scene…

With no shortage of good things to report on, and recommend, I think it’s best I get straight on with it without further delay!

Thornham Village Hall is the place to be this weekend for anyone interested in art, as an exhibition by The Five Painters is open both tomorrow and Sunday between 10am and 5pm supporting the local Stroke Association group.

Stephen Martyn’s work is included with the other four local artists, and there’s plenty of variety to be enjoyed. The very worth while charity does much to help those rehabilitate whilst recovering from a stroke.

As usual, it’s always worth taking a look at Westacre Theatre’s What’s on list. Tonight Bowjangles Bertie Bow presents PoppyLand Songs. 7.30pm is the start time to enjoy this celebration of those who lived and died in PoppyLand, North Norfolk. Tickets may still be available, if interested do visit: thelittleboxoffice.com

A new Record Club is starting up at Lynn Library, 5pm on Monday, October 16. The idea is to discuss your favourite music and recordings, the virtues of vinyl, and perhaps even hear some music.

All welcome, turn up on the day or book a space on: 01553 772568.Find out more about record clubs at: reelconnections.co.uk/record-club/

For those who enjoy a good quiz why not turn up to a Coffee Quiz, 11am on October 25? The venue is The Fred Hall Room, 2nd Floor, Marriott’s Warehouse. There is a lift available. Entry is just £5 per head, including a drink and biscuits.

No need to bring a team, the organisers will make them up. The Quizmaster is Jeff Hoyle, be prepared for a prompt start!

If you’re in the Dersingham area, you can enjoy another Fun Quiz Night at Dersingham Village Centre, next Friday, starting at 7pm. There’s a cash prize for winners, raffle and Team Name Competition.

It’s in aid of The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House. For further information and to book contact Graham Eley on: 07901 896102 or grahamreley@tiscoli.co.uk

Over at True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum and other locations between October 23 and November 9 events will be held during a Margery Kemp Festival. Keep an eye open for further details to appear soon. I’ll hope to keep readers posted!

I enjoy quality Science Fiction so this week I recommend, as my film choice: The Creator, concerning a future war between the human race and AI. A subject of relevance to us; well reviewed, the movie is on general release.

From the near future to the long past! The Roman past, and a very readable book, just out from retired Cambridge University Historian and TV presenter, Mary Beard.

The book is a must for all interested in the ancient world, entitled: Emperor Of Rome, out now and published by Profile Books.

Still on literary matters I notice the famous and bestselling author Philippa Gregory is holding a book launch on Monday, October, 30.

The venue is King’s Lynn, Corn Exchange, start time, 7.30pm. The new book is Normal Women, published on October 26. To book visit The Alive Corn Exchange website.

Also, well worth a view is The Mousetrap, the world’s longest- running play, celebrating seventy years.

It comes to The Corn Exchange stage between October 23 and 28. It’s the thrilling West End production of this Agatha Christie classic. Book now by visiting the Corn Exchange website.

Lastly, don’t forget the fine entertainment that’s regularly on offer at Hunstanton’s Princess Theatre.

I notice Bingo Thats Bonkers tonight, The Freddie and Queen Experience tomorrow and Upbeat Beatles Sunday; what’s not to like?
