The event is held in the estate's 6,000-acre parkland, and will also see acts Little Sister and Morganway take to the stage for a stellar line up of live music and entertainment that goes on late into the evening.

Live music begins as soon as the gates open at 4.30pm. A huge bonfire will also be lit, whilst the "spectacular" fireworks display takes place between 7.00 and 8.00pm, and as usual it is arranged once again by Full Effects Fireworks.

Ivor Novello award-winning, Brit Award-nominated band The Feeling first burst onto the scene in 2006 with their debut Top 10 UK hit 'Sewn'. The band's debut album, Twelve Stops And Home, followed in June 2006. It was a huge success, selling 1.5 million copies worldwide (with platinum sales of over 900,000 in Britain).

Along with 'Sewn', the album also included the bona fide hit singles 'Fill My Little World', 'Never Be Lonely' and 'Love It When You Call'.

Accompanying airplay made them the most played act on British radio that year, receiving 97,436 spins (or 267 a day). In due course, the band won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriters of the Year.

On the night, there is also a traditional funfair including dodgem cars, a helter skelter, bars, plus fish & chips, hog roast, BBQ and a variety of other tasty local foods.

The event sees all proceeds raised going to local charities and the estate does not take any of its expenses, including the cost of the fireworks.

Tickets are £35 per car, and are available in advance from the following outlets: Halesworth Wine Shop, Halesworth Golf Club, The Huntingfield Arms and Laxfield Co-op.

Tickets can be bought online at where you can also find more information about the event.
