Music fans and partygoers will be able to party in a popular park once more as a family-friendly festival makes a return.

A leading tribute band festival will return to the stage in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft in June.

Hundreds of people had descended on Nicholas Everitt Park in the summer of 2019 as sell-out crowds turned out for the inaugural Oulton Broad Nearly Festival.
