A concert will be held at the Queen’s Royal Estate in Sandringham to celebrate Norfolk Day.
Organised by King’s Lynn Festival, the La Vida Espanola will be performed by multiple award-winning guitarists Julian Vickers and Daniel Bovey.
They will be performing at the historic Park House Hotel, which was once the childhood home of Princess Diana.
Tess Gilder, manager of Park House Hotel, said: “I am delighted to be involved. I like to support Norfolk.”
Taking place on Friday July 27, from 5pm, the guitar duo will be performing a selection of music by Albeniz, Rodrigo and Ravel.
The Royal Academy of Music graduates have won numerous awards and featured on BBC Radio Three’s In Tune and Late Junction.
Lynn Festival chairman Alison Croose said the concert combined the best Norfolk has to offer – top quality musicians performing in a picturesque, historic West Norfolk venue.
“We like to take festival audiences to places they may not otherwise visit, such as Park House on the beautiful Sandringham estate, and that fits in well with the celebration of Norfolk Day,” she said.
Sandringham has attracted thousands of visitors from all over the world and close to 50 businesses in the county have a Royal warrant to supply to the royal estate.
Earlier this month, Prince William said he and his family had a special connection with Norfolk, where he lived for a time with Kate Middleton in nearby Anmer Hall.
Lynn Festival is an internationally-renowned annual feast of music and the arts, staged for two weeks in July every year since 1951.
The festival was started and established by Lady Fermoy to celebrate the restoration of the 15th century Guildhall of St George in King’s Lynn.
The EDP is sponsoring the special Norfolk Day musical concert which will be followed by a celebratory glass of Prosecco.
Tickets for the Park House Hotel concert can be purchased from the Lynn Corn Exchange by calling 01553 764864 or visiting www.kingslynnfestival.org.uk.
