The family-friendly weekend in the middle of the north Norfolk village will include a variety of music, an acoustic stage, dance tent and main stage.

It will also include a show by Roy Davenport, from Davenport's Magic Kingdom in North Walsham, a healing field, food and boutique stalls, beer tent, workshops, children's puppet show, circus acts, cinema tent and Buddhist tent.

Proceeds from this year's Trunchonbury will go towards the Mundesley Inshore Lifeboat, run by volunteers, and Trunch village causes.

The festival started in 2007 as a garden party in the village and it was expanded in 2009, attracting 800 people and raising £3,500 for the Big C cancer charity in Norfolk.

This year there will be a ladies' day on Sunday where men can also join in and dress up.
