Thousands of people are expected to attend a three-day music festival in Earlham Park this weekend.

Norwich Party in the Park is now in its second year following a successful launch last summer in Catton Park.

This year's line-up includes around 20 bands, as well as a number of tribute acts for the first time.

During the day there will also be a funfair for families to enjoy and a wide range of food and drink stalls.

Danny Banthorpe, one of the organisers, said: 'We had a fantastic response from last year's festival and so this is a progression from that.

You may also want to watch:

'Last year the event was free, but logistically we have been unable to do that again, so we have put on a small charge on the door.'

Unlike the festival in Catton, the Earlham event will have the food and drink tents included in the main arena space and people are asked to not bring their own food and drink to the event.

Gates open at 5pm on Friday, with live music from 5.30pm until 11pm.

On Saturday, the festival kicks off again from 12.30pm and continues through to 11pm.

And on Sunday, a variety of tribute acts will be performing from 1pm until 8pm.

People are asked to use public transport to get to Earlham Park, off Earlham Road as there is limited parking at the nearby UEA.

Tickets cost £3 for adults on Friday, and include one free child aged four to 14 per adult. Under fours go free.

Meanwhile, on Saturday and Sunday, adult tickets cost £4.
