Graham Middleton, deputy leader and cabinet member for business, culture and heritage at the borough council, said: "Our events programme has been well supported over the last few months and I look forward to seeing this popular free live music event return.

"The focus of our summer events is to encourage people into Lynn and enjoy what the town has to offer.

"This will be the fifth time that Lynn has hosted Folk in the Town, hopefully the sun will shine and I cannot wait to see live music being performed once again in the Tuesday Market Place."
