Soul fans are in for a treat when the country's largest and longest running music event of its kind comes to Great Yarmouth this bank holiday weekend.

Caister Soul Weekender will be held at the Vauxhall Holiday Park from Friday until Monday.

The weekenders have been staged in the Yarmouth area from 1979.

This weekend's theme is Caister Academy ,with 'students' being welcomed and guided by 'soulful tutors', with a school detention party held on Saturday night.

A spokesman said: 'Who would have thought in 1979 when it first began that the Caister Soul Weekender would still be running today, and not just running but stronger and more influential than ever.

'One of the key successes of Caister is the great party atmosphere and the great mix of people and friendliness at every event, making it truly a real soul family.' For tickets visit
