Details have been released about the return of a popular Woodbridge festival next year.
The Beowulf Festival will be returning to Woodbridge between May 3 and May 6 next year for its second edition.
Beowulf is produced by former Woodbridge mayor Clare Perkins alongside local musician Jan Pulsford and was originally held in lieu of a Mayoral Ball for Ms Perkins year as head of the council.
Instead of a ball the pair created the festival to celebrate the town’s links with Beowulf through nearby Sutton Hoo which proved popular.
Now the festival is set to return for a second event themed along the idea of ‘Journeys’.
