Hundreds of revellers are preparing for Sudbury’s annual two-day music festival this weekend.

Organisers of the Live and Kicking are expecting record numbers at this year’s event at the MEL Group stadium.

Now in its fourth year, the festival will feature 19 live acts and is being headlined by the former lead singer of The Specials Neville Staple.

There will be a display of vintage scooters which took part in the closing ceremony of the London Olympics last year, a beer festival and the chance to see 20 rare images of The Jam dating back to the early 1980s.

On Sunday, a children’s fun village featuring bouncy castles, bungee runs and gladiator duels will be running.

Organiser Richard Instance said: “We are really excited about this year’s event it is certainly our biggest and best yet.”

Radio presenter Stephen Foster and Great Cornard author Charlie Haylock will be comperes. Tickets will be available on the gate.
