The annual arts extravaganza will run from May 8 to 24, and the latest acts revealed include experimental Icelandic musician Ólafur Arnalds and American jazz band Hot Sardines who will both grace the stage at Norwich Theatre Royal. The comedy show High Heels in Low Places is one of the Adnams Spiegeltent shows and acrobatic trio Barely Methodical Troupe will perform the show Bromance at St George's Theatre in Great Yarmouth.

William Galinsky, the festival's artistic director, said: 'These four new announcements all come from different countries. 'Ólafur Arnalds is a brilliant composer and musician from Iceland whose beautiful music can be heard in our living rooms each week in Broadchurch, The Hot Sardines are a raucously energetic old school jazz band from New York, Bromance is a jaw droppingly gravity defying combination of physical theatre and circus from three of Britain's hottest young acrobats, and Ireland's national treasure Panti will fill The Adnams Spiegeltent with wickedly warm laughter.

'We shall be announcing the full programme on February 25, I can hardly wait to let everyone know all the thrills we have in store.'

Other shows already announced include: Wolf's Child at Felbrigg Hall in north Norfolk; the return of Australian circus troupe Circa to the Adnams Spiegeltent; and an exhibition by American artist Jeff Koons at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery.
