The team at Brancastaer Staithe’s The Jolly Sailors pub are preparing to hold their fifth annual Norfolk Ale and Music Festival with plenty of local talent on show.

Following the success of last year’s event, the free festival is set to return over June 20-22 with a total of 30 beers for you to try alongside a soundtrack of great live, local bands.

Organiser John Turner, said: “We’re just looking forward to building on the success of last year with another exciting weekend of beer and music.

“The village primary school is holding their fete over the weekend as well so it should be a busy one for the village.”

The event is fundraising to support The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House and Brancaster Primary School, with collections throughout the weekend.

Throughout the weekend, visitors can enjoy performances from top talents including Murphy;s Lore, The Sweetbeats and the Sheringham Shantymen in the garden marquee.

For those who cannot make it along to the festival, there is another opportunity to catch a live music event at the pub on August 15, when Cambridge Folk Festival Young Musician winners, The Tin Pigeons will play.

Bringing indie, folk, acoustic, soulful harmonies in their own style, the band are touring Norfolk in aid of musical charity Disability Rocks. Starting at 9pm, the gig will be free entry.
