A 1960s pop band, jazz, swing, ventriloquist, and comedy are all rolled into a week of entertainment in this summer's Mundesley Festival.
The event runs from Monday August 5 to Saturday August 10 and showcases a mixture of music and mirth geared to holidaymakers and locals too.
The Ivy League are the pop stars - reviving hits such as Tossing and Turning and
Funny How Love Can Be, both top 10 hits in 1965, on the Tuesday.
There is a double dose of jazz, with the return on Wednesday of the ever popular Temperance Seven from last year, while on Friday John Petters and his six piece trad jazz band make their festival debut.

On Wednesday comedy ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, who appeared last year and has also been a hit in Cromer's summer pier show, returns - supported by the comedy impressions of Dave Evans, the father of Lee Evans.
