Hosted by the Broads Authority as part of the National Lottery Heritage-funded Water, Mills and Marshes Scheme, the festival offers free activities, performances and workshops for families.

There will be various performances from local theatre companies, family activities, storytelling and workshops, with visitors invited to explore the countryside and River Waveney by day boat, ferry or on guided heritage walks.

Broads Authority project officer and Festival organiser, Anna Collingbourne, said: “This festival will celebrate the Broads and will be a great day out for people of all ages.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for local people to enjoy their National Park, to cherish it, to learn more about it and to experience the river and marshes for themselves.”
