Mundesley Festival hailed a success

Organisers of the five-day Mundesley Festival were celebrating a successful event this month.

The event, which ran from Monday, August 6 to Friday, August 10, featured performances by Jonathan Wyatt Big Band with Olly Day and the Moonglow Sisters, Richard Digance, Tony Goodacre, Steve Hewlett and The Temperance Seven.

Proceeds, which are still being counted, will go to East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Compere Pat Nearney said: 'Everything went very well. For the first time we had The Temperance Seven playing and that was a sell-out performance. We also had Steve Hewlett, who has been the headline act at Cromer Pier and was very popular.'

Mr Nearney stepped in to run the event after organiser Derek Kirk was taken to hospital with a heart problem. He said Mr Kirk had undergone an operation and was now recovering in hospital.
