SUN 14 MAY 7.30PM £17.50 / Concs £15.50

Firmly established as one of Ireland’s greatest ever entertainers, Dominic Kirwan hits the road again with a brand new show.

Henry VIII is the only king whose shape you remember. He bestrides our history like a colossus and the decisions he took still reverberate today. The Reformation is the first Brexit; his ministers devised the doctrine of Parliamentary sovereignty and his tumultuous personal life pitted religion against politics as brutally as in our own age of Isis. In this lecture David Starkey draws on his unique knowledge of Henry’s reign on the one hand, and his insights as a leading commentator on modern politics on the other, to illuminate both the Tudor age and our own.

LOCAL EVENT

TUE 20 JUN 6.30PM £4.50 / Under 18s £2.50 / Family (4) £10

SAT 24 JUN 6PM £10

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment return to King’s Lynn as part of their national Musical Landscapes tour. Amongst a week of workshops and an exciting mix of performances, the OAE will be mixing pieces by JS Bach, Biber and Philip Glass with new compositions by James Redwood. Also in this concert is the premiere of our ‘Sound of King’s Lynn’ film, by Zen Grisdale; soundtrack written and performed by local amateur musicians. The concert will tell the story of the constantly changing landscape of the world we live in. Starting at the very beginnings of the earth, we hear music which illustrates the earth’s journey from its creation, through the millennia of change which has led us to where we are now: huge pre-historic landscapes, peaceful pastoral scenes, industrialisation and the world we see around us today. It’s sure to be an unmissable occasion, for all ages.

Join us for an evening of live music featuring local talent including The Extons (as featured on Radio 1), The Walks and The Coots, with more names to be confirmed. Also including an auction, guest speakers, green screen and Mindaid official video premiere all in one evening! All proceeds going to West Norfolk Mind mental health charity, to help raise awareness of mental health and break the stigma behind it.

SUN 25 JUN 3.30PM £16 / £8 (front row only) Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 2 Shostakovich: Symphony No. 11 The two mighty works in this programme are both referred to as “cinematic”, although in neither case was this intended by the composer. Rachmaninov’s gorgeous Piano Concerto No.2 is, for many people, always associated with the soundtrack of the film Brief Encounter. Shostakovich’s titanic 11th Symphony, on the other hand was written as a response to the massacre of protestors by the Russian Imperial Guard, which led to the 1905 Revolution. This has been described as “a film score without a film” as it depicts the events of the day in one huge sweep of narrative sound.
