An new music festival, designed to bring the very best indie music to Suffolk, is set to be launched next month.

The inaugural ‘Indie Sermon’ will take place in St Peter’s Church, Sudbury on Friday, December 19 and will feature Nigel Clark of 90s Britpop legends Dodgy and Chris Helme of The Seahorses.

Support will come from Michael McGlone and local singer/songwriter Alan Bonner.

If successful, Indie Sermon could eventually become a monthly event.

Edd Keogh, who is promoting the festival with Andy Piper, said: “Sudbury takes as bit of a bashing for its lack of nightlife so we wanted to bring big artists to a new exciting venue on a regular basis.

“We’re immensely proud of Sudbury so it’s a real honour to bring two amazing artists from the Britpop era to our market town.”

Doors open at 6.30pm. Tickets are £7 in advance from the White Horse, Stag & Doe Jewellers or at
