The VW Whitenoise festival is celebrating its fifth year at Euston Park, near Thetford, and its 16th year overall, with a mixture of campers and day visitors set to enjoy music, food and family entertainment.

This year’s live music line-up includes The Neville Staple Band (from The Specials) dance music favourites Shades of Rhythm (Saturday) and soul and funk DJs The Allergies (Friday).

Lucy Haughey, festival organiser, said: “This is our 16th year which is going to be bigger and better than ever.

“This year we have secured sponsorship of the main stage from Lacons Brewery and they will be serving their award winning ales in the Whitenoise bar called The Sunburnt Arms.

“It’s set to be a fantastic festival with lovely summer weather.”
