All the festival favourites will be on the menu at this year's Fakenham Fair as well as the addition of a new food festival.

The fair will have a vintage 1950s theme and will be aiming to bring the nostalgic song and dance of that era to the day.

At 1pm there will be a procession of vintage vehicles and performers through the town centre from Highfield car park.

The cars will be joined by 1st Academy of Dance and Fakenham and District Light Operatic Society as they head to Milennium Park where Norwich City legend Ken Brown will open the fair. Among the entertainment on offer will be a 1950s penalty shoot out, Glee Club choir, touch rugby, Juke Box Jury game, Taekwondo, It's A Knock Out style team games and a performance by 1st Academy of Dance.

There will also be performances in the Busker's Tent from the likes of Datty Shud, Anto Morra, Grandmaster Folk, Smith and Wykes, Craig Lewis and sax and clarinet duo Alligan & Kaira Bundock.

Local producers and street food sellers will be on hand for the Fakenham Food Festival along with some breweries which will be selling their Norfolk ales as the festival is once again licensed.

There will also be a Great Fakenham Bake Off event and a cocktail bar, which is a joint venture by a brewery and liquor producer.
