Weekend of family events for Lynn's Hanse Regatta
King’s Lynn Hanse Regatta takes place from 10am on Saturday and noon on Sunday.
Organised by the King’s Lynn Coastal Rowing Club, it will feature boats from all over the country.
The Parade of Flags kicks off the Hanse Festival on Sunday at 10.45am. From Tuesday Market Place, it will head through town and into King’s Staithe Square.
Anyone can join the parade and participants are encouraged to dress as a pirate or Hanse fisherman and make some noise with instruments or just pans and wooden spoons.
Thanks to Rachael Williams, the learning and engagement officer from Stories of Lynn, children from local schools will be getting involved with the festival parade again this year.
King’s Lynn Town Guides will lead the Discover Hanseatic Lynn walks. They are an hour long and free but must be booked at the Tourist Information Centre.
There will be live music on the main stage in King’s Staithe Square.
Meanwhile, Tuesday Market Place hosts a Spring Plant and Craft Fair on Saturday between 10am and 4pm.
As well as children’s activities, there will be cakes, hot food, plants and craft stalls. Other attractions include a drop-in plant and tree surgery and chainsaw carving demonstration.
Children will be encouraged to plant poppy seeds and take part in creating a display to mark the centenary of Peace Day, on July 19. The creation will be shown in July in King’s Lynn library.
The free activity and craft workshops are for all ages, but under-11s must be accompanied by an adult.
