Organisers of a two-day live music event have announced the main line-up of acts for this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday, Woodbridge will be hosting one of 330 Our Big Gig events planned across the country and supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government and Arts Council England.

Local musician, DJ and writer Ben Osborne was chosen to put together the event, which takes place from 2.30-11.30pm on Saturday at Woodbridge Community Hall.

Town mayor Patti Mulcahy and county councillor Caroline Page will introduce the acts, who include Scarlet Saunders, Martlesham Heath-based Northen Soul DJ and EADT selection for the event, Stephen Murphy, BBC Suffolk Introducing pick Charlie Law, former Thompson Twins tour keyboardist Jan Pulsford, event organiser Ben Osborne and, headlining the first day, Norwegian electronic musician Per Martinsen (also known as Mental Overdrive), joined by Aggie Frost for one of their only two live performances in the UK this year.

The entertainment continues the next day - following the annual Woodbridge Regatta - from 4.30-5pm on Market Hill, then onto The Angel in Theatre Street, where the Blue Bus Tour will present Rhianon Mair and Aartwork, before performances from Kevin Walford, Robert Brown, Oculus, Andy Heasemen, and a three-way DJ battle between Ben Allen, Ben Sherman and Ben Osborne, whose electronic music and art collective, Noise of Art, will also be debuting a club-based music, film and art show at this year’s Latitude festival to mark the 40th anniversary of cult 1973 film The Wicker Man.
