A music concert in Dereham has changed its tickets from standing to seated because local people said they would only go if they could sit down.
The Hank Wangford and the lost cowboys gig at Dereham memorial hall on June 29 was originally promoted as an all-standing event.
Tim Cara from Friends of Dereham memorial hall said: 'We have had an overwhelmingly strong response from people who say that they can only attend if the event is seated. The reason is clearly that the audience for this type of show is generally growing older. More of us would rather sit and listen, than stand and move around.'
Tickets are now on sale for a seated' event but the seats will not be numbered, so members of the audience can choose where they sit on the night.
Mr Cara said: 'We have removed the first two rows of seats nearest the stage so that those who prefer to stand or dance can still do so.'
