With Christmas only a few days away, our HOHS families are doubtless busy with preparations. But if you’re looking for a pre-Christmas family outing – or perhaps have last-minute shopping to do and can’t face the city crowds – why not go west and hit King’s Lynn in the late afternoon or evening to see the historical town lit up in spectacular, festive splendour?
‘Lynn Lumière’ has seen French-designed illuminations light up the town since Spring this year, funded by the European Union Interreg IVA programme. Currently, from dusk until 10pm every evening, six of the town’s famous buildings are transformed with amazing animated light shows depicting Lynn’s heritage and history. Five of the illuminations are Christmas-themed and two include scenes (with sound!) from classic Disney films, while others have been specially commissioned to represent a joyous Christmas spirit.
