PICTURE GALLERY: Culture from across the world at the Southburgh Festival, near Dereham

Music, dance, theatre and food from around the globe were part of a colourful spectacle in a Mid Norfolk village on Saturday.

World of Music 2011 was the title of the third Southburgh Festival, at Burton Manor Barns near Dereham, and there were performers from Zimbabwe, Japan, Ivory Coast, Brazil and the home countries during the 10-hour event.

Norfolk-based Anna Mudeka, a Zimbabwean who become a well respected workshop leader and performer of music rooted in the African traditions - organised the festival, which is supporting Aids orphans in her homeland.

The day was a mix of giving people to try their hand at everything from Taiko drumming to African dancing as well as watching the performers.

Among those taking part were the Norwich Samba Band, New Holland, Vocal Chords and Trinity Broad Singers, Anna Mudeka's own band, the Kaago Dance Troupe and Garlic Theatre.
