A fantastic line up of music has been announced for the King’s Lynn Festival from July 13-26.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, pianist John Lill, singer Clare Teal with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, the Fairey Brass Band, the Orchestra of St John’s, guitarist Craig Ogden with The London Tango Quintet and cabaret duo Kit and McConnel will all be performing.
Festival chairman Alison Croose said: “We have already received a lot of positive comments about the great breadth of interest in the programme and anticipate that enthusiasm will be translated into a busy box office.
“For many the highlight of the festival is to hear and see a major orchestra. As well as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra this year there will also be the Orchestra of St John’s and English Concert to enjoy.
“Lots of people tell us how much they look forward to hearing a brass band and this year, for the first time, we feature the prize-winning Fairey Band.
“John Lill has built up a following at Lynn and we look forward to his return, and we will also welcome back guitarist Craig Ogden and jazz singer Clare Teal who have both given sell-out festival concerts at Lynn in recent years,”
The festival is not just about music - on July 16, geographer and BBC Coast presenter Nicholas Crane will talk about a solo adventure he had as a 14-year-old schoolboy to King’s Lynn.
