Our Mission

The building has played a central role in the history of the town for six centuries. Now, new life is being breathed into the Guildhall and its warehouses to develop new spaces for culture and creativity. By day, this awe-inspiring venue will be a heritage attraction and a space for schools and community groups to come together to participate, learn and create. By night, the theatre will have a year-round programme of performances, ranging from home-grown works to national names.

The St. George’s Guildhall and Creative Hub project is managed by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and is supported by Town Deal funding.
