THE HANSE DAY FESTIVAL IS ON MAY 20
So what is a Hanse Day? It will include a parade, a regatta on the Ouse, pirates versus knights battles, music, guided walks and a treasure trail around the town celebrating Lynn’s medieval and seafaring past. And what is it celebrating? The Hanseatic League was a network of ports including Hamburg, Stockholm and Bruges. Lynn has the only surviving Hanseatic League warehouses in the country – Hanse House and Marriott’s Warehouse, both dating back to the 15th century.
