Following the success of last year’s debut event, the award-winning hotel and restaurant near Cromer has bumped its capacity from 650 to 1300.

This year’s festival, which will take place on Saturday 4 August, will also boast an expanded food area featuring an outdoor BBQ and vendors hand picked by head chef Stuart Tattersall.

Last year saw Kitty, Daisy & Lewis headline on the music front with several local bands and DJs supporting. The acts taking centre stage this year are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

The event proved hugely popular last year with tickets selling out within two weeks of going on sale.

Rupert Orton, the festival’s promoter, said at the time: “What’s unique about this festival is that it makes the most of the North Norfolk culture. We had venison, which is a speciality as we’re in a deer park, and all of the acts had a connection to Norfolk in some way.”

“We wanted the bands playing to reflect the high quality and standards of the food and service at the Gunton Arms, as well as sourcing as many acts as possible from the local area, and those who have played in Norfolk before,” he continued.
