More news, no ads


More than 100 people will flock to Hunstanton this weekend to celebrate the first King of East Anglia, St Edmund.

A scrumptious hog-roast feast is being held in Hunstanton's newly-refurbished town hall this Saturday.

St Edmund died at the hands of the Vikings on November 20, 869AD.

The evening will entail music from the folk band Fried Pirates.

Chair of the Hunstanton and District Festival of Arts (HDFA) Christine Earnshaw said: "We're excited to be able to bring this event to Hunstanton to celebrate our local saint and equally thrilled with the help and support of so many local businesses and organisations.

"The HDFA was founded on the enjoyment of music and dancing just over 80 years ago, so its very fitting that we bring an event like this to Hunstanton for people to enjoy after a difficult year and we look forward to happier times in 2022."

The event is being supported by local businesses including Kemp's Fruit & Veg, Dove Orchards Farm Shop, Witley Press and Redgate Bakery.
