Organisers of the Reepham Festival are making final preparations for the event this weekend.
They are looking forward to welcoming nearly 2,000 festival goers on Saturday and work has already begun on the festival field to erect the stages and install the electrical framework.
The festival line-up includes acts varying from local bands to international stars.
The headliner, Neville Staple, has a 40-year career in the music business as the front man of The Specials, Fun Boy Three and Special Beat.
Festival favourites returning to Reepham this year include reggae band Jeramiah Ferrari and rock band Walkway.
They join popular London-based seven-piece band The Kubricks on the main Hansells stages in the field on Saturday.
Reepham Festival has always prided itself on being a family event.
