Some of Norfolk’s finest music acts will perform in the idyllic setting of Sedgeford Hall over the August bank holiday as part of a family fun weekend.

Hosted by Unique Norfolk Venues, these two days of top talent will provide a musical feast for the masses, who will be entertained between the sets with all manner of craft activities, games and a fair.

Throughout the weekend, visitors can catch performances by a huge collection of local artists managed by Twisted Melon Promotions.

Triston Finnis, of Twisted Melon, said: “When putting the musical line up together I wanted to cater for every age group as well as cover as many genres as possible. With The Brink, Jessie’s Ghost and Addisons Uncle we have three Battle Of The Bands winners as well as including rock, folk and acoustic pop to the line up.

“Add the amazing Rebelation performing acoustically, Norwich’s Next Big Thing winners The Thinking Men, local favourites Vex, the list just goes on and on....

“I think we’ve managed to not only cater for everyone but also put together one of the best ever local music line ups.”

The Saturday programme will see The Duke Of Nukem, The Legacy, Shock Hazard Acoustic, Movements, Sam Lindley, Caught In The Act, Renegade, Flashback Photograph, From The Sticks and Battle of the Bands 2014 winners Addison’s Uncle hitting the stage.

On Sunday, audiences can catch Jay Harrison, Ross Woodhouse, Sally Ann Pottle, Club 33, Yve Mary B, Falling From Trees, Finding Ana, Rebelation Acoustic, The Thinking Men, and previous Battle of the Bands winners Jessie’s Ghost and The Brink.

More than just music, the fun continues with plenty to keep families entertained.

Jaymi Maxwell-Tintey, of Unique Norfolk Venues, said: “There will be lots of activities for the children – donkey rides, apple bobbing, lucky dips and a fancy dress competition each day at 3pm, plus free face paint and a bouncy castle.” There will also be a raffle draw at 3pm on Sunday with some amazing prizes.”

Jaymi added: “There will be live music playing from 12pm-9pm and food will be served all day, with a barbecue, salad bar, paella and ice creams. Not forgetting our amazing sweet table serving lots of delicious cakes and treats. And the bar tent with real ales and a Pimms Bar.”
