From a “wibbly-wobbly vision” to create something different for people of all ages, the Jelly Festival has been born and is being held at Compton Hall at South Creake, near Fakenham, this Saturday (noon-11pm).

The site is best known for its maize maze and for three years a live music event has been held.

Now, Ben Gardner is building on the idea. He has set up a wide line-up of music with a mix of London-based and local bands.

Heading the bill is DJ Ben Westbeech, who has played the dance stage at Glastonbury and has made a minimix for Annie Mac's mash-up programme.

Also on the bill are Nouvelle Croix, a gipsy-jazz band, who will be taking to the stage at sunset and Cass Lowe, whose live looping skills have seen him support Newton Faulkner, plus fun indie with Swelltones and jazz-soul with the Chameleons.

As well as the music, there's entertainment such as sumo suit wrestling, a giant bouncy castle, 40ft inflatable slide, balloon modellers and face painting.

And the jelly? That'll be given out free, with donations welcomed for the Spinal Injuries Association.
