Play King’s Lynn Civil War top trumps this Norfolk Day

Civil War Siege Shuffle at Stories of Lynn

Published: Wednesday, 27th July 2022

To mark Norfolk Day 2022 the Kick the Dust Time Turners, based at Stories of Lynn, have created “King’s Lynn Under Siege.” A top trumps style card game that can be played at Stories of Lynn.

Will you be on the side of the King or the Country? It’s time to pick a side and play the game to see who scores the highest. Rachael Williams, Learning and Engagement Officer for Stories of Lynn, said:

“The Kick the Dust Time Turners are a group of young people who have created a fantastic card game that brings King’s Lynn history to life for Norfolk Day this year. We invite you to join the card battle and meet characters in costume and be quizzed about the 3-week siege of King’s Lynn in 1643. Whose side will you be on, King or Country?”

Stories of Lynn in the Saturday Market Place, King’s Lynn, will be open to play the game between 10am and 1pm on Norfolk Day, Wednesday 27 July 2022. Visitors can also see the amazing artifacts at the museum.

Free entry for 12 – 25 year olds and free entry for under 12s if accompanied by a fee paying adult (£3.95 or concession £2.95).

Cllr Graham Middleton, Deputy Leader and cabinet member for Business, Culture and Heritage added:

“Once again Rachael and her Kick the Dust team have come up with a creative way for young people to learn and experience the rich history of our town. I look forward to trying the game and urge people to visit the Alive venue on Wednesday to play for themselves.”
