They left Northgate High School a decade ago but now five school friends who went on to form a rock band are returning to Dereham to play a gig in the town.

Freudian Slip will be playing at The Bull pub, in the High Street, on Saturday from 8pm.

Reg Lawrence, who plays lead guitar and does backing vocals, said: 'The gig is an extra special one as we all left high school at Northgate 10 years ago and have been away to university, but have managed to get the band going and progressing whilst holding down the day jobs!'

The band, which has been influenced by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and Radiohead, was formed in May 2008 although the members started writing songs a few years before setting up the band.

As well as Reg, the rest of the band are Lewis Whittle, Craig Hitter, Tim Gardiner, and Dan McCarthy.
