Stalham High Street will be closed for traffic on Sunday, June 3, and the festival will showcase a range of musical styles and tastes, with the oldest brass band in East Anglia, the Stalham Brass Band, led by Tim Thirst, performing alongside other attractions.

Children will have the chance to make their own puppets and there will be a range of stalls along the High Street selling food, beers, ciders, plants, crafts, wood carvings, confectionary, ice cream and milk shakes.

Cawdron’s butchers will be providing a hog roast and the Truck Stop a range of fast food.

Diana Cornell, from the Stalham Area Business Forum, said: “We have had a massive response from local performers who are giving their time for free to entertain visitors. What a way to kick off the summer.”

Events run throughout the day.
