Various exhibitions have opened in the town centre as part of the 68th annual King's Lynn Festival.

Lynn from all Angles, at the Fermoy Gallery, exhibits the works of King's Lynn artist Walter Dexter alongside the paintings of Cambridge-based artist Jon Harris.

Walter Dexter's reputation as one of the most prolific artists in the region is still growing more than 60 years after his death.

His paintings illustrate the rich colours of the West Norfolk landscape, particularly of King's Lynn which inspired most of his work.
