Fishing for funds at Springwood concert

Musicians came together at a WNAT school to raise money for a King’s Lynn heritage site.

Springwood High School hosted a fundraising concert in the Peter Hopkins Hall in support of True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum, which charts the story of the old North End fishing quarter and is almost entirely run by volunteers.

Over 150 people attended the event, where the Springwood Concert Band performed along with The Segno, Lewis Meehan, and the Marham Military Wives Choir.

Numbers included Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, selections from Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and Lord of the Dance, and theme tunes from television, as well as favourites from musical theatre, and some original pieces.  

“The event came about after Paul Bland, Deputy Mayor, attended the Springwood Christmas Concert, after which he asked if we would be prepared to work with him and True’s Yard on a fundraising event for them,” explained Robin Norman, who is Head of Music at Springwood and WNAT.

“It was wonderful for the school students to be able to share the stage with the Military Wives Choir, as it gives them the opportunity to witness other musicians in different settings,” he added.

“It was fantastic to be able to offer a wide range of music and styles to a very appreciative audience.”
