Meet the Team at King’s Lynn Town Hall

At King’s Lynn Town Hall we pride ourselves on customer excellence.

Meet our dedicated team and find out a little more about their stories!

Sam Jay

Operations Manager

Sam is the Operations Manager for King’s Lynn Town Hall and Stories of Lynn, and has been in post since 2014, but has been part of the Borough Council since 2001.

Sam is responsible for the day to day operations of both facilities, and still gets goose bumps every time she walks into our beautiful venue! You can often find her dealing with brides and grooms, organising our bookings, and leading her great team like a trooper!

Having got married at the Town Hall in 2017 Sam can give wedding information from personal experience.

David Hobbs


David has been a caretaker at King’s Lynn Town Hall since 2004, because of the nature of events here, especially the civic life of the Borough, he feels that rather than years of experience he has had a year’s experience numerous times!

As well as being involved with the day-to-day running of the Town Hall, the previous Tales of the old Gaol House and now Stories of Lynn, he is on civic occasions a Sergeant-at-Mace, or in regular parlance a mace bearer, and at times Sword Bearer to the Mayor. Until recently he was, when required, the Mayor’s chauffeur (the only time that he ever got to drive a Mercedes!)

He gets great pleasure from helping hirers organise and run their functions, and he loves to expound on the glorious history of the series of buildings and the artefacts that comprise the King’s Lynn Town Hall.

Tim Jay


Tim is one of our caretakers at King’s Lynn Town Hall, and has worked at the Town Hall since 2015.

Tim can often be found setting up for events, carrying out maintenance tasks with his trusty tools in hand, and front of house, suited and booted at weddings.

In his spare time Tim loves spending time with his family, trying his hand at DIY, and showing off his culinary skills, mostly through BBQ’s! He is never happier than when relaxing in front of the TV with a much loved cuppa!

Toni Crane


Toni joined the team at King’s Lynn Town Hall in February 2018, and has worked at the Borough Council since 2003.  In her spare time Toni likes to go out walking with Rosie the English Bull Terrier and loves spending time with her grandson.  She also likes to go out running when she has spare time to blow the cobwebs away.

Toni really enjoys working at the Town Hall and is proud to work in such a fantastic building.
