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.

Sunday sees a craft fair and music by the pond, opposite the Castle Inn, followed by a car boot, craft fair and parade through the town on Monday. Entry to Castle Meadow for the music, stalls, games and entertainment is free.

“It’s a flower power theme - decorate yourself and come and join us,” said a spokesman.
