Thousands of music fans will be heading for a second day of live music at Earlham Park in Norwich today, with former Oasis star Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds the big draw.

Yesterday's 1980s-tinged nostalgia at Let's Rock will give way to more up to date sounds, when the Sunday Sessions take over the park.

Who is performing at the Sunday Sessions?

The headline act is Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, the band former by the former Oasis star in 2010.

Other acts include Razorlight, The Coral, October Drift, Neon Waltz and Norwich four-piece punk rock ban Ducking Punches.

What's the weather going to be like?

You might want to take an umbrella, at least for the early part of the day. Phil Garner, from University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest, said: "Unfortunately, we have got some rain coming in across the county. It does look like that is going to be with us for the early part of the event.

"There could be some sharp bursts of rain from about 2pm to 3pm. But through the afternoon, it will move away to the east. And from 4pm onwards it will be clearer and there could be some sunshine coming through."

Don't forget to look out for an eight-page supplement featuring photographs from the weekend's events in Monday's Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News.
