Taking place at the Norfolk Showground on Wednesday 26 June, the Royal Norfolk Show will build on last year’s successful evening programme with a new mini-music festival – Sunset Sounds.
The line-up will feature a strong mix of country and rock with local band Morganway delivering a fiery fusion of Americana country, rock and blues. Hot off the back of multiple performances at this year’s Country to Country Festival in London, the Norfolk-based band is receiving a wealth of accolades and their debut album is set for release in early August.
Also on the line-up, providing the ‘sunset soundtrack’ to this special summer’s evening are Skerryvore, a Scottish ‘trad-rock’ fusion band, UK country/American band Sam Coe and The Long Shadows and Norwich-based singer/songwriter Lucy Grubb. BBC East’s Keith Greentree will host the programme which is set to appeal to all ages.
Sunset Sounds offers an exciting new level of entertainment and experience for all visitors to the Royal Norfolk Show – with the programme for the Wednesday extended late into the evening. For those who can’t make it for the full day, tickets for entry after 4pm are available from £10 (£5 concessions). Many areas of the Show will also continue into the evening including an extended Grand Ring timetable, late-night shopping and a vast array of food and drink.
“Sunset Sounds will bring a fantastic atmosphere and experience to this year’s Royal Norfolk Show,” says James Hill, Show Director. “We’re always looking to bring something new to the show and following the success of last year’s programme we’re delighted to announce another superb evening of live music and entertainment with a fabulous line-up of talent, coupled with a great selection of food and drink to cap off the night!”
The Woodland Arena is sponsored by Woodforde’s Brewery and the line-up for Sunset Sounds is in partnership with the Norfolk Music Hub.
