Gorleston's Cliff Top Festival will kick off this year on Norfolk Day.
The opening of the fun-packed coastal event has been timed to coincide with the countywide celebration on Saturday July 27 that last year saw thousands of people enjoy more than 300 community jubilees, throw parties, host get togethers and take the opportunity to celebrate what a wonderful place Norfolk is.
And proud to be part of that revelry, organisers of the Cliff Top Festival have promised a jam-packed weekend of family fun.
The free to attend two-day festival has been going on for more than 20 years, attracts over 100,000 visitors and is organised by a committee of local residents.
Stephanie Mays, the committee's treasurer, said: 'We try to offer something for the whole family, from live music, a funfair, children's entertainment, a fun dog show - the list goes on.'
The treasurer said that the festival, which costs approximately £34,000 to run, relies on sponsorship, pitch fees, advertising and goodwill from local businesses to cover the costs of putting on the event.
