A popular Suffolk music festival remains on course to bring live music this summer.
Red Rooster Festival, located near Thetford, is set to go ahead with its previously announced rescheduled dates from Friday, August 27 to Sunday, August 29.
The event is set amongst 300 acres of the historical private gardens and rolling parkland of Euston Hall.
It is the perfect setting for weekend get-togethers, great soul food, and the long-awaited return of live music.
