Blickling Hall's popular summer concerts will not take place this year after promoters failed to find enough acts to perform.

The annual weekend gigs - which are worth tens of thousands of pounds to the National Trust site near Aylsham - have been running for 13 years and have previously seen acts like Van Morrison, Simply Red and Boyzone appear on stage.

Yesterday both the National Trust and promoters The Rival Organisation confirmed they would not go ahead this summer but should be back next year.

Patricia Murfin, visitor services manager for Blickling Hall, said: 'Due to circumstances beyond our control, we regrettably have to announce that there will be no star concerts held at Blickling this year.
