Organisers of the Worstead Festival are hoping the sunny weather continues as they prepare for a busy weekend of entertainment on July 27 and 28.

A dedicated performance and attractions area will be a new addition to the traditional themes with music, theatre, workshops and sideshows.

Attractions this year include a silent disco, The Parkour Alliance, Norfolk food and drink and chefs demonstrations and science fun, alongside the traditional farm machinery and horses and weavers in the church.

Bewilderwood adventure park will also be there, along with a medieval village.

The cost has been held at £5 for adults with under 12s getting in free.

Gates open at 10am and close at 6pm.

Festival chairman Simon Cole said: 'There will be lots to see and do this year, hopefully appealing to all ages.
