The light shows that transform King's Lynn's buildings every evening after dark make a change on Sunday, as part of the Christmas lights switch-on in the town.

After an afternoon of live music, street entertainers and special guests in the Tuesday Market Place, the lights will be switched on at 4.30pm.

Then, at 5pm, new festive light shows will begin on five of the six Lynn Lumière sites.

The buildings have been lit up every evening since March as part of a project between West Norfolk Council and the Maison de la Culture d'Amiens.

New Christmas-themed projections will light up St Nicholas' Chapel, the Minster and Greyfriars Tower, while 'Savages', a light show celebrating the life of Frederick Savage, returns to the Custom House for the festive period.

An excerpt from the Disney film 'Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas' will be projected on to 1-3 Tuesday Market Place, while 18 New Conduit Street will be lit up by a clip from the Disney film 'Frozen', also with sound.

These festive light shows will all be shown every evening from 5pm to 10pm until Wednesday, January 6 next year. The current shows will all return on January 7.
