Norwich-based band Groovapolitan are set to perform at Market Place in the town on Saturday (June 24) from 11am to 1pm.

The band, which is made up of Dario Salvi, James Porter, Hannah Salvi, Clare Durrant and Matt Furness, are also known for their disco numbers.

All-female a cappella group Black Voices are next on the festival’s programme, and will perform at Wymondham’s Central Hall on Friday, June 30 from 7.30pm.

Black Voices perform in the black oral tradition - which is an early music form that is based on the ancient folklores and storytelling of Africa and its diaspora, which has impacted on the development of classical and more recent music genres such as blues and jazz.
