Saturday saw one of the biggest events on the festival calender - StowBlues.

The event at the Museum of East Anglian Life saw the cream of local blues talent show off their musical skills.

Cedars Park hosted its biggest ever event on Sunday with a well attended Family Fun and Fitness Day. And there is plenty more on the festival programme to keep you excited.

Festival co-ordinator Daniel Harvey said: “This year’s festival is going really well.

“The blues festival on Saturday was terrific, I’m sure everybody who went had a really good time.

“There was a really good mix of blues music and this year the bar didn’t run out. There is something about the blues festival - it is just a real feel good event. It is a great

way to kick start the festival but there is lots still to come.

The festival finishes on June 10 with a big free community musical festival StowFest beginning on June 9.

Daniel said: “If the weather is good it will be absolutely brilliant.”
