King’s Lynn Town Guides will be hosting a regional conference of tourist guides.
Up to 80 delegates are expected to attend the event at the Hanse House on Saturday, April 21.
The event was last held in Bury St Edmunds, in 2016.
Bob Price, Chair of King’s Lynn Town Guides, said: “There was interest in holding the 2018 event from a number of other towns, including Colchester and Ipswich, but the Lynn Guides’ enthusiasm in wanting to bring the event to our corner of West Norfolk won the day, and invitations have been sent out across the region this week.”
“This is a great opportunity to show off our town to providers of tourism services from other parts of our region, and as a showcase for Lynn’s heritage tourism businesses.”
The day commences around mid-morning with coffee, followed by a welcome presentation by the Borough Mayor Carol Bower, a keynote talk on Hanseatic Lynn from Dr Paul Richards and a talk on King’s Lynn Festival Town Elizabeth Nockolds. There will then be a networking session and a buffet lunch. In the afternoon there will be organised guided walks and visits to Stories of Lynn, Town Hall and Minster.
As part of the event, every delegate will be provided with a souvenir “goody bag” about the key heritage attractions in King’s Lynn. Local organisations and businesses are being invited to include any suitable material in the goody bags, eg leaflets, menus, key rings, pens etc.
