West Norfolk council which organises the event has had to adjust its layout due to wind direction and says visitors should wear wellies and dress appropriately.

A council spokesman said: "The wind direction means we need to adjust the usual layout, so from 7:45pm all access points to the event from the town centre will be closed. People are urged to arrive early and park in town centre car parks. People walking in from the other side of The Walks will still be able to access the site from the Tennyson Road side."

The council has urged those looking for updates to visit its Facebook page.
