Light show makes changes for Christmas

Art, Cities & Landscapes, Lynn Lumière, the light shows that transform many of King’s Lynn most historic buildings every evening after dark are going to be replaced by new shows for the festive season.

The current light shows will all be shown every day until shortly before the King’s Lynn Christmas lights switch-on on Sunday 22 November, starting at 5pm and continuing until about 10pm.

As part of the Christmas lights switch-on new shows will begin on St Nicholas’ Chapel, King’s Lynn Minster and 1-3 Tuesday Market Place. A non-Christmas-themed show entitled Savages returns to the Custom House. These projections will continue until Wednesday 6 January 2016, and the current shows will all return in March 2016.

This is a great opportunity to come and see the current light shows before they take a break. The shows were due to finish at the end of October, but have been extended due to their popularity. There are six Lynn Lumière sites around the town centre: St Nicholas’ Chapel, 1-3 Tuesday Market Place, The Custom House, King’s Lynn Minster, 18 New Conduit Street, and Greyfriars Tower. A full trail map is available from the Tourist Information Centre or www.west-norfolk.gov.uk

Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, Cabinet Member for Culture, Heritage and Health, said: “The light shows are a wonderful addition to King’s Lynn’s attractions, and we hear from residents and visitors alike how much they are enjoyed: we hope people will come along to take advantage of this free entertainment”.

These fascinating artworks make a unique starting point to explore the history of the beautiful buildings they illuminate. They were created by French artists as part of the Interreg IV funded cross-Channel Art, Cities & Landscape project between the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk and the Maison de la Culture d’Amiens.

Anyone who has seen “Night Sailors” at the Custom House by Julia Dantonnet and “St Nicholas’ Waves” by Shantidas Riedacker will be delighted to learn that these are the artists commissioned to design the new Christmas light shows.
