Norfolk comedy and country bluegrass music will combine to launch the Mundesley Festival this summer.

The event has already announced the New Seekers as its headline act, and is now piecing together the final parts of a week- long programme.

Opening the week on Sunday night August 1 will be the local humour of Keith Loads which went down well at the Cromer Pier Christmas Show, as well as talented country bluegrass musician Hayley Moyses from Norwich who appeared at the Cromer folk festival last year.

Keith's comic partner from the Cromer festive show Olly Day is also heading to the Mundesley week, running until August 7, as a singer, alongside Lynsey Ball, with the Jonathan Wyatt big band on the Monday.
