Promising a Banquet of Sound and summer entertainment, Jelly Festival serves up a feast of activities and showcasing some unstoppable musical talent.

Ben Gardner, festival organiser says: “The Jelly Festival is a music festival that breaks the mould. I wanted to create a festival that is reflective of the old country fayres that bring the community together, whilst giving people a chance to perform and sell their produce.”

He adds: “Jelly holds these traditional elements but with high end production, mountains of decor and big acts that have travelled globally. There’s something to suit everyone and is a great place to bring the kids. This year is our fifth year and we are going to create the most incredible festival experience to date. Plus, Norfolk is a great backdrop to the festival and boasts stunning countryside, market towns and beaches."

Music stages and other entertainment

The Jelly House Party has a living room main stage, kitchen banqueting area, bedroom big top, reggae rumpus room, observatory dance dome, kids play room and summer house cocktail bar making sure everyone feels right at home! Each room is allocated to a different stage or area within the festival.

There’s a Playroom especially for children offering a wide range of free workshops, from circus skills and drum lessons to arts and crafts workshops. The kitchen area is stuffed full of some of the finest world cuisine, flavors and smells that will tantalize your taste buds.
