A new film which marks the 800th anniversary of King's Lynn is being premiered on Sunday.

The film, Celebrating 800 Years of King's Lynn, is being screened at the town's Majestic Cinema and a limited number of tickets are still available for the 1pm showing.

West Norfolk independent film maker Robert Fuller is the man behind the film - his latest in a series of successful films, focusing on aspects of West Norfolk life and history.

The latest film, which is narrated by actor and writer Stephen Fry, chronicles events and celebrations that happened over the mayoral year from May 2004 to mark the 800th anniversary of King John granting Lynn its charter to become a free borough.

Mr Fuller said: "Throughout the anniversary 12 months the community of Lynn set about celebrating and marking this anniversary with numerous events and displays."

The film has been commissioned by the Lynn-based Audrey Muriel Stratford Charitable Trust. The Trust was set up before the death of Miss Stratford to preserve aspects of Lynn life for the education and enjoyment of future generations.
