Following a service at the Minster, the newly-restored eight bells at St Nicholas' Chapel will ring out to mark the start of the two-week King's Lynn Festival tomorrow.
The bells will be heard from about 4pm to 7pm and chapel visitors will be able to watch the ringers in action.
The festival will then burst into life at the nearby Corn Exchange with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra's programme featuring music from the movies plus classical favourites.
Festival chairman Alison Croose said: 'The festival will feature a host of famous names from the worlds of classical music, jazz and folk plus exhibitions, films, walks and talks in a packed programme.
'Among those appearing are soprano Lesley Garrett, clarinettist Emma Johnson and recent BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winners, The Unthanks.
You may also want to watch:
'There will be recitals by Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt, and harpist Catrin Finch, a former royal harpist to the Prince of Wales.'
Four concerts will also celebrate Lynn's association with composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, who conducted a festival concert at St Nicholas' Chapel.
