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’.
A number of artists have already been confirmed for the event including Adrian Mills and Susie Hammond.
The festival will also see the return of the eye catching projections to the Tide Mill which proved successful at this year’s event.
