Sounds of 1960s at multiple sclerosis charity ball at Sprowston

A major fundraising ball for a multiple sclerosis charity is being revived after an eight-year gap.

The event will be staged at the Sprowston Manor hotel near Norwich on Saturday July 20.

It is the work of retired businessman Freddie Pegg, who used to own the Sheringham Development Company, and his wife Gail. They used to regularly run balls which raised a total of more than £100,000, including a record £13,500 one year.

The revival black tie event, running from 7pm to 1am, features a three-course dinner, and entertainment including music by Together comprising members of the 1960s groups The Rocking Berries, Merseybeats, Tremeloes and Dakotas.
