The event was started by Mundesley Parish Council and has been attracting holidaymakers and north Norfolk residents since its beginning.

Organiser Derek Kirk, from Seaview Road, Mundesley, said: 'The parish council decided there was not enough going on for visitors to the village. It started as a week-long music festival with prices that local people could afford.'

He added it attracted people from all over the country and he looked forward to it every year.

Previous acts have included Brotherhood of Man and the New Seekers.

Some of the proceeds from the festival will go towards the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the local first responders group.
