Chairman Jula Janney said: 'Last year we had a brilliant day with fantastic music and wonderful weather. It's going to be the same full house this year, but with even more stalls and rides and a line-up of musicians to please everyone, and we anticipate the crowds will be even larger than 2016 - and that was pretty large!.

'So don't forget to pack up your chairs, blankets, even bring a picnic if you wish, and get down to Beccles Quay and claim your spot for the afternoon's entertainment.'

As well as the music there will be food stalls, children's games and rides, plants and various other stalls, as well as the popular beer tent run by The Butchers Arms in Beccles.

Dogs are welcome and free parking is available at the quay.

The committee is also in need of more volunteers on the day. Anyone who is able to help can email julapearl@gmail.com or call 01502 717098.
