An historic estate is hosting a summer picnic concert featuring 1940s glamour and music this weekend.
Blickling Hall, near Aylsham, is hosting its Last Night of the Blickling Proms outdoor concert for the fourth year running on Saturday August 8.
It is following a 1940s theme and commemorating 75 years since the estate was handed to the National Trust.
This year's concert is again supporting the Veterans Norfolk group.
The umbrella organisation brings together all the county's service charities and liaises with councils to enhance the welfare and well-being of the armed forces and veteran community.
It is the nominated charity of the Last Night of the Blickling Proms event and £1,050.00 was raised at last year's concert.
The concert, staged by Revival Productions, will feature the Sinfonia Viva orchestra and mezzo soprano Annette Wardell performing 1940s style music.
