King's Lynn Festival Chorus is trying to track down former members for a special reunion.

Organisers would like former members to contact them for a meal to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The event is being held on the evening of Saturday, May 20, at St Nicholas Chapel, in St Anne's Street.

Anyone interested in attending should contact Jan Clubb via janclubb65@gmail.com or call 07748 947953 by Friday, March 31.

Formed in 1977, the Festival Chorus is a choir based in Lynn which draws members from Norfolk and adjoining counties.

It performs a range of music from the great choral masterpieces of the last 400 years to jazz and pop classics.

As well as being resident choir for the annual King's Lynn Festival, the chorus performs several concerts at St Nicholas Chapel throughout the year, working with well-­known professional soloists. It has also undertaken tours of Europe.
