PREPARATIONS are under way ahead of a popular charity music event in Lowestoft.

K Fest returns for a third instalment on Sunday, May 30, and one performer has spoken of his excitement ahead of the event.

Darren Steger-Lewis, of Russian Seduction, said: “It's such a great event and we are thrilled to be playing as part of it. The last two have been so good and have had such a huge amount of support that we hope that it's the same this year. I'm helping to organise the event this year and I can't wait.”

The event remembers the life of local musician Karen Sturgess, who died aged 39. She organised the first festival in May 2008, raising £2,000 for the Big C Appeal. Karen, known as Kay, performed at the event and before she lost her battle with cancer the following month, asked that the festival continued to be held each year.

Last year's event raised £3,000 for the Sandra Chapman Unit of the James Paget Hospital, in Gorleston, Macmillan Nurses and the Big C Appeal, and this year organisers are hoping to emulate that success.

Other acts expected to perform at The Fisherman's Wharf in Lowestoft from noon are Riding Shotgun, Jericho, Nevacain, Monkey Island, Not Clever and Claw of Panther.

In addition there will be a balloon release, face painting, raffle, comedy vocalist Katrina Knight and other special guests.
