Saturday Club – True’s Yard Vancouver Quarter Collaboration
Creatures of the Sea
April 28 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Learn about the Creatures of the Sea and make a Jelly Fish!
A fun and educational experience all round!
We actively encourage anyone attending to dress up as their favourite sea creature or merfolk. Also bring any old plastic bags to be recycled as jelly fish. Plastic that is just thrown away is really bad news for our rivers and seas so this way you’ll be helping the sea creatures you’ll learn all about. Don’t worry if you forget as we’ll have brought plenty of our own!
This is one not to be missed!
The session will run from 10am until 3pm, location to be confirmed.
Exhibition Opening at True’s Yard
Friday, May 04, 2018 12 noon
This exhibition will look at the men of King’s Lynn who served under Vice Admiral, Horatio Nelson, the War Ships that were built here that served in the great battles and the controversial Press Gangs who terrorised the town during the Napoleonic Wars. We also look to Nelson’s family connections here in King’s Lynn and the influences on the “Norfolk Man”.
Talking about the exhibition Museum Manager, Lindsey Bavin said “The Napoleonic War left a mark on King’s Lynn as it did all over the country. In 1814 the town held an enormous Peace Festival dinner for over 6,000 people in Tuesday Market to celebrate what they thought was the end of the War. We have Nelson Street and the incredible portrait of the Vice Admiral which hangs in our Town Hall. However this exhibition does not focus on those in the foreground of history but those in the back. The purpose of this exhibition is to celebrate and educate on the contribution of the people of King’s Lynn in the Napoleonic War.
The exhibition will run until 30th June.

Local History Research Centre Open Day
You are cordially invited to attend the Open Day of the Pat Midgley Research Centre. As you all know Pat meant a great deal to all of us here at True’s Yard. She was a pioneer of heritage and the cottages would not be here today 27 years later were it not for her tireless campaigning to save the priceless collection relating to the old North End.
It is free to attend and a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes!
