A music festival is promising a top line-up of revered folk and roots artists at town's pier.

Cromer’s Folk on the Pier is set to entertain audiences at the Pavilion Theatre on May 10, 11 and 12.

The festival has flourished over its 26-year history, drawing well-respected folk and roots music artists to the stage.

This year’s line-up includes festival regulars While and Matthews, known for their numerous outings at the event.

On the first evening, Sally Barker and the six-piece Sandy Denny Project will pay tribute to the late Fairport Convention singer.
