The popular Last Night of the Blickling Proms is returning to the rural visitor attraction next year.

Blickling Estate will be holding the event on Saturday August 8 for the fourth year, following previous successful concerts.

Early bird tickets, costing £29 each, are now on sale until January 31. After that they will cost £33 before the concert and £36 on the night.

The event will have a 1940s party theme to mark 75 years of the historic estate being bequeathed to the National Trust.

It was handed over to the organisation by the estate's last private owner Philip Kerr, the 11th Marquess of Lothian, who died in December 1940.

Blickling was the first major estate which was part of the National Trust Country Houses Scheme.

The scheme prevented historic homes and land across Britain being broken up.
