A sublime evening of harp music followed by virtuoso displays of traditional tango music and dance summed up the broad appeal of the King's Lynn Festival programme.

St Nicholas' Chapel, with its excellent acoustic, was the ideal setting for 4 Girls 4 Harps to give their dynamic performance of innovative repertoire which ranged from Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks and a Celtic medley to Ravel's Mother Goose Suite.

The event had a special local connection – all four musicians play harps made by Italian company Salvi who are a major customer of Lynn harp string makers Bow Brand International, who sponsored the event.

The Festival also played host to Tangomotion, which featured world-class dancers and live music from Tango Siempre, who introduced the sell-out audience at St George's Guildhall to the exquisite sights and sounds of Argentinian tango in 1930s Buenos Aires.
