The setting is Steve Cato's Classic Cars at Tottenhill Retail Park on Saturday, July 16 where there will be bands, stalls, DJ, classic cars and a raffle.

Organiser Julie Walkey said: "I am organising an event to raise money in memory of a good friend, Mark Page, aka Polo, who was the singer in rockabilly bands, most recently The Hal Wrayzer Combo.

"Although he was Norwich-based, he played locally in his bands and his loss has affected many people.

"We are looking for donations of raffle prizes and tickets for the event will also be on sale soon, priced at £10 for the whole day.

"People can find us on Facebook by searching Tottenhill Rock 'n' Roll and raffle tickets will also soon be on sale.

"Mark played quite a lot around Shouldham, in the King's Arms and at the Beer Festival and also played at Heacham and Swaffham Rugby Club.

"Helping me to organise things this time are Ian Skinner, the landlord of the King's Arms in Shouldham, and Steve Cato of Steve Cato Classic Restoration and Bodywork, and Tom McNeil who is Polo's former bass player from the Hal Wrayzer Combo and is DJing for us.

"We also have Neil Roope DJing, who was bass player in another of Polo's bands, The Leopard Trio, and Daffy who was one of Polo's best friends.
