A limited number of dedicated volunteers has been taking turns to open the the building to visitors, as and when they can.

The medieval complex, on King Street, housed King's Lynn Arts Centre until it closed two years ago. Since then it has been a hall for hire.

Guildhall trust chair Ivor Rowlands said: "We've had a really positive meeting with the West Norfolk National Trust Association and local National Trust management and they really want to help us improve the visitor experience at the guildhall. To do this we need to have more regular and longer opening hours and this requires more volunteers."
