THE HANSE DAY FES­TI­VAL IS ON MAY 20

EDP Norfolk - - Places -

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.
