Paul Coulten is hosting a picnic with a difference in his garden.

For the tenth time, he'll be having a jazz band on the lawn, with room to enjoy a jive and a pint or two of real ale.

The Barry Tyler's Original Dixieland Jazz Band will be performing at Rectory House, Boughton, near Downham Market on Saturday, July 29 (12.30 - 3.30pm).

The Saffron Walden-based band plays New Orleans jazz in the style of Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke and Fats Waller.

People are invited to bring chairs and a picnic to enjoy at the event. Admission is £7 on the gate for adults, children free.
