Music lovers and fans of vintage Volkswagen campervans will be flocking to a rural hall this weekend.

The fifth annual Dubs at the Hall weekend festival is taking place on the grounds of Holt Hall (NR25 7DU), on the edge of the town, from tomorrow until Sunday July 5.

As well as live music from Norfolk bands and musicians, it will feature workshops and activities for children, a variety of stalls, a Volkswagen show and shine contest and BMX display.

This year the festival is supporting West Norfolk-based charity Scotty's Little Soldiers, which supports the children of men and women killed while serving in the British armed forces.

Gates open from noon tomorrow for people who are camping, the little dubbers children's area opens at 1pm and bands start playing at 4pm.

The gate for day guests opens and closes at 5pm and 8pm, respectively, for day guests.

On Saturday, campers and day guests can arrive from 9am, bands start playing and the little dubbers area opens at 9.30am and there will be a man vs food challenge at 1.30pm.
