STOWMARKET will launch its first Blues Festival this year as part of the Stowmarket Festival after extra funding was secured.
Money from the Local Strategic Partnership will go towards putting on the free event at the Museum of East Anglian Life on May 28.
StowBlues will make up part of Stowmarket Town Council’s 10-day annual Stowmarket Festival.
Mike Rushmore, event co-ordinator, said: “I’ve played at a number of blues festivals around the country and they’ve always been great fun with a top atmosphere.
I’m sure that it’ll be a really popular event and a great addition to Stowmarket Festival.”
