Fans of the Norfolk dialect will be get 'all of a muckwash' as an annual celebration of the county tongue draws near.
A long-running dialect event is part of a Cromer-based festival promoting music, drama and dance.
It sees entrants performing written pieces of Norfolk prose and poetry, such as the Boy John Letters, and having their efforts gauged by adjudicator Colin Burleigh - chairman of the Friends of Norfolk Dialect.
He is in his second year in the hot seat, having taken over from writer and entertainer Keith Skipper who did it for 25 years.

Organiser Derek Paul said the evening was always popular with a lot of 'old faithfuls' turning up, adding 'thass alluss a bloomin' good dew.'
