Four Czech musicians described as 'one of the best string quartets in the world today' gave the Ruth Fermoy Memorial Concert at King's Lynn Festival.

St George's Guildhall, the building where festival founder Lady Fermoy organised the first Lynn Festival in 1951, was the setting for the event on Thursday, July 27.

Lady Fermoy's daughter Mary Roche and Festival Patrons sponsored the concert during which the award-winning Wihan Quartet played works by Haydn, Beethoven and Dvorak's Quartet in F Major and earned an enthusiastic ovation.

Today (Saturday, July 29) Dean Spanley, a film shot in Wisbech and North Norfolk, will be shown in partnership with Lynn Community Cinema Club at the Guildhall at noon.

At 3.30pm, also in the Guildhall, Chadden Hunter will take the audience behind the scenes in the making of BBC Planet Earth II, in an event presented in association with the Royal Geographical Society.
