New exhibition by Norfolk artists shows the sights of King’s Lynn over past century

Paintings showing the best of King's Lynn over the past century will star in an exhibition next month.

The exhibition includes work by local artists Christopher Thomas Page and Alan Castleton and is being held at the Town Hall for three days starting on Thursday, March 17.

West Norfolk Mayor Zipha Christopher has arranged for these works to be displayed and she hopes the event will raise money for her nominated charity, West Norfolk Young Carers.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 10am to 4pm on March 17 and 18 and from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, March 19.

Entrance on these days is free, however, donations to the mayor's charity fund would be appreciated.

The paintings by Mr Page show Lynn and the surrounding area as it was in the early part of the 20th century and have not been displayed for some 20 years.

Mr Castleton's artwork reflects the historic town and its nautical connections and includes pictures which were used in the book King's Lynn and West Norfolk, History and Landscape.
