Maui Waui's upcoming Pirates Ball event has been moved to a new location.

Originally planned to take place in Ramsholt, Suffolk in May 2021,  it was postponed due to covid restrictions.

The event will instead be taking place at Peakhill Farm in Theberton, near Saxmundham. 

This was the location of the main Maui Waui Festival until 2021.

Organiser Silas Rayner said: "We're moving the Pirates Ball to Peakhill Farm, where the festival used to be.

"This is kind of special for us because Maui Waui was born there."

The Pirates Ball will be taking place at Peakhill Farm in Theberton, on Saturday, May 7 and tickets start from £35. 

The ball will feature bands on the festival stage and DJs on the pirate ship stage. The lineup is yet to be announced.

"Maui is like a family — only about ten percent of people asked for refunds after we postponed the event last year. 

"We sell out just before the event most years because it is one of the first outdoor music events of the season."
