If you’re in East Anglia and were wondering when our 2017 events bonanza would reach you, wonder no more – Countdown in King’s Lynn returns for its third year, held as ever on the May Bank Holiday weekend!
If you’re not acquainted with the Norfolk market town, the organiser and long-time community legend Mike Brown has provided an irreverent yet informative description of it: “For those of you who are still not aware (even after last year), King’s Lynn is a town on the Wash in the west of Norfolk and is the birthplace of Captain Vancouver, who gave his name to the rather larger metropolis of Vancouver in the west of Canada. It used to be called Bishop’s Lynn (or Lynn Episcopi if you’re a Latin speaker) until 1204, when King John decided he’d name it after himself. Since last year’s Co:KL, King’s Lynn has decided to put up a statue in his honour, which is a slightly controversial choice, given his track record. Anyway, it’s a very nice statue and well worth a look.”
Held at the historic Great Hall at Thoresby College, entry is just £12 for 6 games – find out more about the event HERE, including comprehensive info on travel, accommodation and the event set-up.
