MUSIC, food and flavours from across the globe will set the tone as the sixth Southburgh Festival of World Music returns in a blaze of colour to an otherwise quiet corner of Norfolk later this year.

Soul singer Myles Sanko, Irish band Murphy’s Lore, folk band Farlanders and Klezmer band Horo Trio are just some of the acts already confirmed for the hugely popular family-friendly event at Southburgh, near Dereham, on August 2.

Organiser Anna Mudeka, who will also perform with her band at the one-day festival, is urging families and world music fans alike to buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

She said: “The festival has been growing in popularity every year, so it’s no surprise that people are snapping up tickets early.

“Last year’s festival was a great success and we are really excited by this year’s line-up too – there’s going to be a fantastic blend of world class acts and a huge variety of workshops and activities on offer as well.”

African drumming, pottery painting, belly dancing, circus skills, wood carving and salsa dance make up just some of the workshops and activities being lined up, along with a play area for toddlers.

Proceeds from bar sales on the day will go to The Mudeka Foundation – a charity set up by Anna to help disadvantaged children in her home town in Zimbabwe.

The singer and performer will be visiting Zimbabwe next month to check on the progress of a foundation-funded school building project.

She said: “The charity is having a big impact on the lives of children in Muda, so it’s fantastic to let ticket-buyers know that they are really making a difference.”
