A traditional musical charity fundraiser comes to an end tomorrow in a coastal village.

Mundesley Festival, in its 32nd year, includes music and mirth and is raising money for the heart specialist unit at Papworth Hospital in Cambridgeshire.

The charity was chosen by the festival's general manager, Derek Kirk, who had an aortic valve replacement and a triple heart bypass operation at the hospital three years ago.

He wanted to say thank you to the specialist health centre.

The festival raises about £800 to £900 for its chosen cause in a typical year.

All festival shows are held at the Coronation Hall, 26 Cromer Road, (NR11 8BE), at 7.45pm. Doors open at 7.15pm.

Tonight's live event, which closes this year's festival, is by Norfolk comics Olly Day and Nigel 'Boy' Syer. Tickets for If It's Laughter You're After cost £12.
