The headline act for one of Norwich's biggest annual music events will be announced tomorrow.

Entering its third year, Sunday Sessions Norwich in Earlham Park has become a much-anticipated fixture in the city's live music calendar, completing a long weekend of gigs on the site in May.

Now, the wait is nearly over to discover just who will be headlining this year's event, with organisers set to reveal a big name tomorrow - Monday, December 2.

Posting on the event's official Facebook page, organisers wrote: "Sunday Sessions #Norwich headliner announced Monday!"

This year's event will be held on Sunday, May 24, on the same weekend as Let's Rock! Norwich and the recently announced Friday Night Live.

Last year, the event was headlined by Noel Gallagher and His High Flying Birds, with support coming from The Coral and Razorlight - among others.

It saw the Oasis lead guitarist play a hit-laden set in which he also took a pop at Norwich City's promotion to the Premier League, dedicating Stop Crying Your Heart Out to Canaries fans "for when they get relegated".
