Reepham is getting ready to rock, and relax to classical music, at its annual major summer festival this weekend.
At least 17 bands - headlined by the legendary rhythm and blues group Dr Feelgood - will play over the weekend of August 10 and 11.
But the aim is to cover for all tastes - with the busy line-up featuring The Kaiser Thiefs, the only Kaiser Chiefs tribute band in the UK, as well as the Imperial Vienna Orchestra playing classic Strauss waltzes.
Festival director Steve Jenkins said: 'Reepham Festival strikes the right balance between a family day out and a marathon treat for music fans.
'We always say that the festival provides something for everyone and this year really proves the point.'
