Festival Too is back and the programme for the first weekend of 2017 has been announced.

The Bootleg Bee Gees will be the main act on King Staithe Square on July 1, followed by a spectacular firework display, sponsored by Lovells from 10.30pm.

Festival Too chairman Alan Taylor said: “The Festival Too committee are really pleased to be able to announce the 2017 programme early for the first time in 32 years.”

The Saturday action will start with Bill Bailey’s All Star Jazz Band, Sky High and Tommy the Clown performing in the town centre throughout the day.

This will be followed by the highly-anticipated appearance of the Bootleg Bee Gees in the evening.

The Bootleg Bee Gees are a fully self-contained trio, with PA and lights.

The boys have already played in every corner of the UK, always bringing the house down with their incredible recreation of the romantic ballads and fantastic disco tracks written by the Gibb brothers.

All the greatest hits are faithfully recreated, including: Night Fever, Stayin’ Alive, Words, How Deep Is Your Love, Tragedy and Jive Talkin’

Bee Gees fans will be able to sit back and watch this brilliant show, sing along with their favourites and dance the night away to the songs from Saturday Night Fever.

Whatever you want to do, you will have a night to remember with The Bootleg Bee Gees.

On Sunday, there will be a Festival Too first.

A new Sunday afternoon Jazz event will feature DixieMix on the King Staithe Square stage between 1 and 4.30pm.

This promises to be a great afternoon for West Norfolk’s jazz fans so bring a deck chair and relax and listen to some brilliant New Orleans jazz music.

DixieMix will be supported by a West Norfolk school and a local jazz band.

The six-piece jazz band are led by the youthful cornetist Simon Nelson and has rapidly established itself as one of the UK’s most engaging and hard-working jazz ensembles.

The band brings together the best jazz musicians in East Anglia, providing outstanding entertainment for all occasions.

Further announcements about other acts at this year’s free festival will be made to the people of West Norfolk during the next fortnight.
