Fine music, a range of beers and plenty of good times are set to flow as a Norfolk rugby club gets ready for its annual beer festival.

The Crusaders Rugby Football Club based in Hethersett/Little Melton will host its ninth annual festival July 21-23.

Maurice Durrant, events co-ordinator, said the festival would raise money to upgrade the club's changing rooms, and help a rugby charity called The Wooden Spoon which supports disadvantaged and disabled children in the area.

Mr Durrant said: 'Everyone always really enjoys it, so we must be doing something right. People can camp for the weekend and not worry about driving home.'
