Since the 15th century St Nicholas’ Chapel has been a focal point in Kings Lynn’s life. Entering through its West Door is a jaw dropping experience. Its historical significance and use for many Festival musical events continues that tradition to the present day.
The Friends of St Nicholas’ Chapel are a registered charity, Charity No. 1099693, and were formed in 2002 to protect, promote and manage the building on behalf of the CCT. We we did this until 2014 when refurbishment of the Chapel started, along with the rehanging of the bells in 2015. Since then the CCT has employed a manager and a learning development officer to further enhance the building’s use in the community and its commercial viability. The Friends continue to help and advise in this process. There are currently about 100 Friends and we elect a committee who meet regularly.
