Roaring twenties event set to transport King’s Lynn’s streets to an era of glitz and glamour
Sequins, flappers, glitz and glamour - the streets of King's Lynn are to be transported to the 1920s in celebration of the Queen's birthday and organisers want members of the public to get involved.
Themed events will take place at Tuesday Market Place, Baxter's Plain, the Vancouver Quarter, Lynn Museum and the town hall gardens on Sunday.
Avril Wright, deputy portfolio holder for culture, said: 'It has all the trademarks of a British day out and we will cross our fingers that the weather will hold out.'
On the market place there will be a tea dance and DJ sets.
A cocktail bar will be serving 1920s-inspired cocktails and mocktails and a 1970s Citroen van will serve cupcakes, and tea. Fairground stalls will set up on the market place and costumed characters will stroll around the town.

Dayna Woolbright, assistant curator at Lynn Museum, said: 'Hem lines went crazy, they were up and down. Everything got more fun and flirty and paved the way for modern fashion.'
She advised those who will be dressing up to wear 'flapper dresses, anything with lots of beads, sequins, sparkles and ladies need to wear T-bar heels' and added men should wear lounge suits.
