King’s Lynn Arts Centre has unveiled an exciting new programme for the first 6 months of 2014.

“It reflects the Trust’s commitment to bringing excellent arts to everyone on their own doorstep in rural West Norfolk – because we deserve it!” said Arts Centre Director, Liz Falconbridge.

Among the highlights of the new season will be sock puppets performing the Sci-Fi spoof Socks in Space which should delight family audiences, and Canada Boys, a drama based in 1912 on Norfolk’s own Colman’s Mustard Factory and the kitchen sink drama The Betrayal by Harold Pinter.

Gallery goers can enjoy a host of local and regional artists with a diverse range of work from traditional to experimental, including the début of novice artists from The Stroke Association, whilst Private Collection will give a tantalising glimpse of cherished artefacts that usually adorn private houses.

The Follow the Herring exhibition will promote the ancient fishing traditions of the East Coast, together with play dramatising the daily lives of the Scottish ‘fishing lassies’ who gutted the herrings on the quay at Great Yarmouth.

Brand new for 2014 is the chance to try out a new language in the Café des Langues which is described as an “intercultural experience” by Arts Centre resident intern Elise Prosniewski. “It’s a chance to share a conversation and play games in French, German, Italian or any other languages you can offer. It’s all just for fun!”

There’s an opportunity to de-clutter and swap your bric-a-brac in a series of Barter Parties starting on 18th February. “Visitors can exchange books, jewellery, clothes or whatever they want” said Elise.

Passionate about photography, Floriane Cornard, is a young French social worker struggling to reduce violence against women and seeks to show through her pictures the strength of women. She will be in Lynn from this Saturday to photograph women who have been nominated for their strength of character. The portraits will be included in her exhibition Femme Formidables from 22nd February. So … If you know a wonderful woman you can nominate them on 01553 779095.

Three exhibitions open this Saturday:

Andy Gatrell, alias King Natcho, is holding his first solo exhibition An Hexxhibition of Killustrations. Andy uses simple materials to create amazing illustrations “conjured from the ashes of the kult of voodoo fire.”

Meanwhile, local ceramicist Paul Ebbens returns to the Arts Centre with Clay Passé, a selection of his vibrant and exciting clay creations from the past 10 years. But there is nothing passé here, as his work is as fresh as if it were made yesterday.

Simon M Smith is exhibiting a selection of exquisite new paintings under the title of Mutability. Simon is a regular exhibitor in London, taking inspiration from his own garden using a unique method of layering tissue paper from unwanted dress patterns with paint.
