Some 15,000 revellers flocked to Earlham Park earlier this year for the 1980s event which featured music from the likes of Tony Hadley and Bananarama.

And now the hotly anticipated line-up has been announced for the 2018 festival which will be held on Saturday May 26.

One of the biggest names on the bill is former Neighbours star and 80s heart throb Jason Donovan who is best known for his Especially For You duet with Kylie Minogue.

He will be joined in Norwich by the Don't You Want Me hit makers The Human League and vocal group The Real Thing.
