Bev Kembery, owner of the Burston Crown, said the pub would offer a £500 grant for a child to have lessons at The Hub – Diss Music School.

The bursary is open to all children who live in Burston, attend Burston School or whose parents are Burston Crown customers.

Mrs Kembery said: “We strive to have the best original musicians from East Anglia performing at the Crown and I just felt that it would be lovely to be able to help a youngster to begin to play or to perfect their skills.

“To win the bursary youngsters should send an email to and tell us why they should be chosen to receive the £500 bursary. Geoff Dixon, one of the organisers of WoW festival and a recent judge for Maui Waui’s Got Talent will help select the winner for us.”

Peter Arnold, owner of the Hub, said he was delighted to work with the pub on the scheme.
