The sun has finally come out so why not enjoy some of the great events going on this weekend.

Olympus Has Fallen (15) is a testosterone filled thriller set in the White House. When armed Korean terrorists, who are fed up with America, storm Capitol Hill, and take President Asher hostage in a nuclear-proof bunker. Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) races to the scene and battles through ruin of the White House to try and save the President and his staff. Other major stars include Morgan Freeman as the speaker of the House, and Aaron Eckhart as the President. And with full overblown action sequences and digital trickery, this film will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat.

Adam Ant is bringing his band The Good, The Mad & The Lovely Posse to King's Lynn Corn Exchange on Sunday at 7:30pm. Along with his band, he will be playing songs from his latest album, Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunners Daughter, along with such classic hits as Dog Eat Dog, Goody Two Shoes and Prince Charming that every music lover will know. Support comes from rockers New Killer Shoes, who were chosen by Adam himself. Tickets cost £29.50, for more information visit: www.kingslynncornexchange.co.uk

Also on Sunday The Barton House railway is holding a Commemoration Day for its golden jubilee year.

There is also a full-size signal box and a museum of M&GN memorabilia, and if you just want to sit and relax you can also enjoy refreshments on the lawn or by the river. Entry is £3 for adults and £1.50 for under 14s.
