The Vancouver Quarter is delighted to announce Alive Leisure has signed up to our Discount Card scheme.
The new leisure trust, which took over the running of King’s Lynn Corn Exchange, Lynnsport, St James Pool, Downham Leisure Centre, and the Oasis at Hunstanton from the borough council earlier this month, joins 10 other town centre businesses currently offering discounts.

Cardholders will be able to receive 10% off their drinks when they show their Discount Card at cafes in the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange, Lynnsport or at the Oasis in Hunstanton. People will also be able to use their Discount Card to get two tickets for the price of one for An Evening of Burlesque which arrives at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange on Saturday 11 October. More information about the show can be seen here.
Centre manager Abbie Panks said: “It’s wonderful for the Vancouver Quarter and for our cardholders that Alive Leisure has joined our Discount Card scheme. The King’s Lynn Corn Exchange had been part of the scheme for quite some time and once Alive Leisure officially launched, we were keen to not only keep the Corn Exchange on board but also see if we could get discounts for cardholders at the other facilities.
“We were delighted by the response from Alive Leisure and were pleased they agreed to offer discounts at Lynnsport and Oasis in Hunstanton. The Corn Exchange has also offered cardholders the chance to get two for one tickets on a show coming up in October which is a great offer.
“We will continue to work with Alive Leisure to seek other opportunities for further discounts and look to see what, if anything, can be offered at St James’ Pool and Downham Leisure Centre as neither have a cafe.”
Simon McKenna, chief executive, Alive Leisure, added: “We are delighted to be working with the Vancouver Quarter and we are planning to roll out some new and exclusive offers for all of the Alive Leisure facilities throughout the coming year. We are looking forward to building upon this already successful partnership”.
Hunstanton’s hugely popular Lifestyles Festival returns this weekend after a one-year absence. The free event is expected to draw thousands of festival goers to the West Norfolk coast.
Freestyle kitesurfing as well as the exciting new discipline Twin Tip racing will blow into Hunstanton for the festival, which will run from 19-21 September.
As well as the British Kitesports competitions, live music, and Volkswagen show on The Green, festival goers will be able to take in extreme climbing, parkour, BMXing and skateboarding, both as spectator sports and for newcomers wanting to have a try or learn more.
Visitors will also be able to begin their kite career with free have-a-go power kiting sessions, take in the work of local street artists at this year’s Lifestyles and learn about the power of renewable energy from British Kitesports and their sponsor Dong Energy.
Lifestyles Festival has also launched a free mobile app, available on both iPhone and android devices, which is a must have for festival goers with competitions to take part in and prizes to be won. “Packed with important information and news, extreme sports fans can be kept up to date with all things Lifestyles,” chairman Liz Pendleton said. “Featuring live Hunstanton weather, including tide times, people who download the app will be the first to know if the conditions are just right.
“There will also be information about the activities happening at the festival and with more details uploaded as and when they’re released, you can stay up-to-date with everything from sports and music to art and VW.”
The festival, which was first held in 2005, had to be cancelled last year because of funding and management problems but this year is set to be one of the biggest yet after extreme sports fans voted with their wallets to help raise more than £20,000 through a public fundraising campaign and a new headline sponsor in Highline Extreme.
In addition to public funding, support has also come from groups and organisations including the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk which has given permission to use its land for free, and will be providing resort staff to assist the volunteers during Lifestyles. Backing has also come from headline sponsors Highline Extreme, Lingo Design, Hunstanton Watersports, Chicago’s, Barking Dog Media, New IT and Park Resorts, but the Festival is always happy to talk to potential new backers.
