Organisers of this year’s Framlingham Galafest say they are looking forward to “exciting times” with the “new and improved” event.

The popular celebration is being re-launched as a three-day event running Saturday-Monday, with “something for all the family to enjoy”.

Kicking off with a Team Fun Duathlon at Framlingham Sport Club, Saturday will also feature a barbecue, bar and music from noon-10.30pm.

Entry to the music is free before 5pm and will feature music by Collage, Man in a Hat and Gasoline Alley.
