For the tenth consecutive year, K Fest will see a selection of the region's finest musical talents performing in memory of Lowestoft musician Karen Sturgess.

Ms Sturgess, known as Kay, organised and performed at the first festival in May 2008, raising £2,000 for the Big C Appeal, before losing her battle with breast cancer the following month aged 39.

Her final wishes were for her family to continue the festival each year to raise money for the Louise Hamilton Centre and Sandra Chapman Centre, both located at James Paget University Hospital.
