The Stalham Fringe Festival is set to be bigger and better after the event's first successful showing last year.

Performers returning for the Sunday, May 26 event include The Choir Worstead, Dance Egyptian, The Lisa Martin Band, Gin City Jazz, Stalham Brass Band, the Happisburgh Light Duo, Dumisani African Drummers and Stalham's Samba Dancers.

Other acts will include the Ludham Ukulele Band, Sea Palling Group, the Octagon Quartet, The Occasional Ceilidh Band and a young dance group called GloPopKidz.

The High Street will be closed and there will be food and drink, clothes and gift stalls. There will be free parking at the council-run car park, Stalham Staithe Surgery and Tesco. There will also be music and other action at four different inside venues.

A spokesman said: "Forget about the long journey to Edinburgh, just pop along the road to Stalham for the fun and festivities."
