Free weekend of music on The Green in Hunstanton

This weekend sees two days of free musical entertainment on the Green in Hunstanton.

On Saturday, West Norfolk Council hosts the Battle of the Bands competition in collaboration with Radio West Norfolk. Designed to showcase up-and-coming talent together with some of the best bands in local music, the event will see six finalists battling it out for the top prize - a place on stage at next year’s Festival Too in Lynn.

Wicca, a goth rock quintet, will kick off proceedings at 12.30pm and they will be followed by indie punk band, Das Kapitans. The Gliders, a young five-piece rock band from Springwood High School, are up next followed by Kissed By Vultures, a three-piece indie rock band. Jazzsigns, next up, will bring a fusion of jazz and blues to the occasion and Dead Horse, a hard rock and metal band, will complete the afternoon’s entertainment.

Each band has 30 minutes on stage to impress the judges. The winner is expected to be announced at about 5pm.

‘Chill Out Sunday’ will be a concert afternoon with three bands performing for the public. The running order is: 12.30pm Vex, 2.30pm Bear Club and 4.30pm The Chebbs.

All are long-established, high-quality bands, very experienced at providing upbeat music to entertain all tastes.

“This is a fabulous weekend of musical entertainment in Hunstanton,” said Cllr Simon Ring, cabinet member for tourism, events and marketing. “We hope people will bring their chairs and blankets on both days and establish their place on the Green.

“Bands on Saturday will need everybody’s encouragement and support so come and cheer them along. Sunday will be great entertainment so come and sing and dance to your heart’s content or just listen and soak up the sounds.

“The borough council wishes to thank Festival Too for their cooperation with our Battle of the Bands competition. A place on the stage at Festival Too is a dream for any local artist. We wish all bands an enjoyable time and may the best one win.”
