Children can make Royal crowns and Charters on the Queen’s coronation day, Friday 2 June, to celebrate King’s Lynn’s long-standing relationship with the monarchy, dating back to the 13th century and a charter being granted to the town by King John in 1204 that established Lynn as a free borough.
This free, drop-in event will run from 10am to 3pm in the unit situated opposite Wilko on New Conduit Street. It comes ahead of a special Father’s Day workshop that is also being run by the Vancouver Quarter on June 17.
“With it being the anniversary of the Queen’s coronation and her official birthday this month, it seemed fitting to have a free, family-friendly event in the town that is only a stone’s throw away from her much-loved country retreat, which has also been the private home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862,” said Vancouver Quarter’s marketing and events assistant David Blackmore.
“Children are going to thoroughly enjoy this free workshop. It will be the perfect way to end the half-term break. No booking is required – just drop-in anytime between 10am and 3pm.”
There will be plenty of other free events in the Vancouver Quarter this year, including the return of our very popular Halloween event and Christmas Grotto. Follow us Twitter, like our page on Facebook and keep an eye on our website for details of events when they are confirmed..
