Three glorious days of flowers, music and fun are on offer at the annual Old Hunstanton flower festival.

Now in its 42nd year, this year's theme is 'Our Favourite Songs', so visitors will be able to come and see which tunes inspired the floral artists in their creativity.

Alongside the floral displays, there will be stalls to enjoy including cakes, preserves, crafts, bric-a-brac, plants, books, clothes, bags and jewellery.

A range of food and drinks will be available and visitors will be able to try their luck on a tombola.

Festival spokesman Chris Guest said: 'We want to spread the word far and wide. It is one of the biggest festivals in the region, and at 42 years one of the longest-running.

'The flower festival takes place in the beautiful setting of St Mary's Church, Old Hunstanton, which dates back to the 14th century.

'Nearby is Old Hunstanton beach with its famous sand dunes and beach huts, and Hunstanton golf course is a few steps away. There will also be a small dog show.'
