Now in its fourth year, the event will take place on Thursday, August 29.

Simon Read, Cley Harbour chairman, said "Cley Harbour Day started as a very small event three years ago and has grown to become a favourite event in the summer holidays for many people.

"Entry is free and we advise people to park in the village car park, near the village hall. Harbour Day takes place on the quay, in the shadow of the wonderful Cley Windmill."

Starting at 4pm, its line-up will include live music from Pirate Joe and the Foreign Locals, and also the Blakeney Old Wild Rovers. There will also family entertainment from Steve Sausage, have-a-go canoe racing, a barbecue, bar, best dressed boat, and a raffle.
