Hundreds of music lovers will be dancing in the Reepham moonlight this summer after chart-toppers Toploader were announced as the headline act for the town's annual music festival.

The band, who had a global hit with Dancing In The Moonlight in 2000, will headline the Reepham16 Summer Music Festival which this year takes place on the weekend of August 13 and 14.

Early bird tickets will be available from next week and fans are being advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

Organisers of the event said: 'Building on a solid reputation as one of the region's premier festivals, promoting excellent, quality acts catering for all musical tastes in a charming family friendly environment at an affordable price, Reepham16 is going to be potentially the best yet.

'With Toploader headlining on the Hansells' Stage and a ultra brilliant line up of great acts - we know that we will put on a show that you'll remember.'

With a reputation as a genuine crowd pleasing live band Toploader have backed the likes Paul Weller, Robbie Williams, Noel Gallagher, Tom Jones, Simple Minds and Bon Jovi, where they became the last British band to play the original Wembley Stadium.
