Norfolk and Waveney Enterprise Services, which runs the centre, says it will demonstrate the impact that the building, which opened in June 2016, is having on the local business community, along with its potential to support new and growing businesses in West Norfolk for many years to come.

Nwes Chief Executive, Kevin Horne said: 'We are immensely proud of the King's Lynn Innovation Centre, our flagship building in West Norfolk. It will be a real honour to welcome the Duke of York to the centre.

'We welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the huge amount of support and activity available through Nwes to ensure that start-up and growing businesses in the local area are given every opportunity to flourish.'
