A day of live music, family entertainment and more will be on offer on Sunday at the third annual CaLM (Chedgrave and Loddon Music) festival.

Running from 11am to 11pm at The George and Dragon pub in Thurton, the festival promises to be bigger than ever with two stages, festival performers, a Ferris wheel, circus skills workshops, various food and beverages and a range of stalls.

Headlining the main stage is DavidLive - a sought after tribute band to the much loved David Bowie.

Other performers will include the Ron Sayer Trio, voted Guitarist of the Year by Guitarist Magazine, along with local bands Mammal Not Fish, Naomi Sutherland, The Magic Es, The Tesla Jets and Bark Prelude.

New for this year is the addition of funfair rides, jump on board Banana Boats, a giant Helter Skelter and Ferris wheel.

There will also be an arena for kids sporting circus skills, creative crafts, games, Abi’s Mud Kitchen, toddler play and more, all included in the ticket price of £3 for five to 12 year olds with under fives free.

And there will be face painting, a henna tattooist, stalls selling festival wear, food stands and real ales.
