Here is a printable version of the programme of events for the next festival.

Venue: Town Hall, Saturday Market Place, King’s Lynn PE30 5DQ. Near, but not on, the riverside on the historic southside of the town centre. Look for St Margaret’s Minster. The Town Hall is opposite that, next door-but-one to Market Bistro.


You’ll need some change for the public car parks - they have 24hr parking fees. Church Street NCP is very strict on ticketing for over-stays, so beware. There are limited spaces outside the venue on the Saturday Market Place, there’s an NCP just around the corner on Church Street, or along the Quayside.


Do please leave ample time to grab a drink and get seated for the listed start time. Doors open half an hour before the start.


Entry to the festival is £8.50
