The Dancing In The Moonlight hitmakers will top the bill on the Hansells' stage on Saturday, August 13.

For the past three years, the Reepham Festival has sold out and indications are that the 2016 event will be another huge success.

The festival line-up boasts 17 acts so far, with more names to be announced.

Reepham town comes alive during the festival weekend (August 13-14), with Saturday performances also taking place at St. Michael's Church – where the Blythe String Quartet will headline. On Sunday, everything moves to Whitwell & Reepham Station, who are the main sponsors of the event, for an afternoon of music and revelry.

This year, a guitar signed by Toploader will be auctioned off and the funds raised will be donated to the band's charity of choice, Great Ormond Street Hospital. The majority of the profits from the weekend will go to good causes and we're proud to be able to give donations to a range of local charities.
