The man behind a multi-venue independent music festival in Norwich is taking things up a gear in 2024.

Ben Street, who also hosts Wild Paths in the city, has submitted an application to North Norfolk District Council for a premises licence to launch Wild Fields Festival at the Raynham Estate, near Fakenham.

It will be an annual live music, wellness and arts festival and if approved the 2024 dates would be August 15 to 18.

Woodland spaces will also be used for outdoor dining and there will be a range of camping and glamping options. 

Mr Street said: ‘We’ve always looked to cultivate a sense of inclusivity, providing safe spaces on site and opportunities for women, ethnic minorities and LGBTQ+ performers.

‘As proud signatories of the 50/50 Keychange Pledge we’re committed to shifting the tide within the events industry."
