Bigger and better than ever before, SnettFest returns this weekend after a few years out of the spotlight and is sure to have the whole village rocking.

With a line-up bursting with local talent, the festival promises to have something for everyone and organisers are looking forward to welcoming crowds to Snettisham over the weekend.

Barry Ward, of Snettisham Village Events Committee, said: “SnettFest hasn’t been held for a few years because there just hasn’t been the time or the funds to organise it, but we decided to bring it back this year.

“It’s a great event and was always really popular, now we want to bring more people to the village and want to get everyone out having fun together.”

The festival will return to its home on Park Field, on Main Road, on Saturday and Sunday when organisers are expecting between 1,500 and 2,000 people of all ages to flock to the event.

The event was hugely popular when it ran for around five years previously, finishing in 2010, now organisers are hoping to see a return to it’s former glory.

Mr Ward said: “We’ve tried to get a real range of talent on the billing with some great local bands that will appeal to everyone. We’ve got a bit of rock and a bit of reggae, and even some jazz in the daytime.”

Saturday’s entertainment will feature performances by acoustic Lynn band Hush, Norwich rockers Tattooed Lies, Dersingham funk rockers Genuine Fake and popular East Anglia soul act Soft Tone Needles from 5pm to 11pm.

Sunday’s billing will jazz up your afternoon with performances by Cocktail Jazz Band and Nene Valley Jazz Men from 1pm.

Then, the evening’s billing kicks off between 5pm and 10pm when Lynn’s acoustic rock’n’roller Goz Unplugged will play alongside Peterborough-based reggae act Zeb Rootz and 80s tribute act Wild Boys.

Tickets are available on the gate for each day, but under fives go free.

Admission is £5 for the under 15s or £10 for anyone aged 15 and over per day. Dogs are not allowed at this event
