Last year, more than 1,000 people embraced their hippy side at the summer solstice festival.

On Sunday June 21, the field behind the Five Bells, in Tydd St Mary, will once again be the venue for live music, children’s entertainment and arts, crafts and therapies stalls.

The event, which runs from noon until 7pm, will raise funds for The National Autistic Society and Leukaemia Care.

Organiser Naomi Katze says: “Putting together an event for like-minded people makes for a fabulous family day of fun and frolics for all.”

The live music line-up announced includes Mickey Flynn, Whisky Before Breakfast, Bear Makes Ninja, The Gangsters, Addison’s Uncle, Beachy Head Diving Club and Another Bloody Day. The amazing Pig Dyke Molly Dancers will also deliver a one off performance.

Food and drink stalls will include sweet and savoury crepes, crispy duck wraps, pulled pork and brisket, ribs, jackets, fajita’s, Caribbean cuisine, vegetarian, coffee, a licensed bar (including real ales and ciders), ice cream, burgers and hotdogs, cakes and bakes, pickles, preserves and chillies.
