King’s Lynn Corn Exchange is very happy to welcome back David Starkey, on Sunday 14 May at 7.30pm. This year he is concentrating on Henry VIII the only king whose shape you remember. He bestrides our history like a colossus and the decisions he took still reverberate today. The Reformation is the first Brexit; his ministers devised the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty and his tumultuous personal life pitted religion against politics as brutally as in our own age of Isis.

In this lecture David Starkey draws on his unique knowledge of Henry’s reign on the one hand, and his insights as a leading commentator on modern politics on the other, to illuminate both the Tudor age and our own.

Get ready to step back in time and relive special moments from the career of dancing extraordinaire, Fred Astaire. The ‘Remembering Fred Tour’ will take you on a magical journey of dance, live music and entertainment supported by special appearances from various celebrity guests. 

Brought to life by the producer of Darcey Bussell and Katherine Jenkins’ Viva La Diva, Remembering Fred will feature song and dance, celebrating the legacy of one of Hollywood’s true screen legends and entertainers.

Aljaz and Janette will be performing steps and turns from the golden age of Hollywood’s most celebrated dance routines. Audiences will hear from famous Fred fans including Twiggy, Darcey Bussell, Don Black and Bruce Oldfield who will share stories of how the screen icon touched their lives and discuss what made him so special. 

The show, which promises to be a magical evening of top hat, white tie and wonderful tales, is backed by a full supporting cast of dancers, a live band and sensational singers. The cast will perform classics from the American Songbook, written by the likes of George & Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. See it Tuesday 16 May, 7.30pm but hurry as there’s limited availability.
