ALL roads will lead to Pakefield next month as country music fans dust off their dancing shoes for a special event.

Lowestoft Country Music Festival gets the town's carnival festivities under way at Pontin's Holiday Centre on Sunday, February 21.

The move to the indoor venue was a winner with country enthusiasts last year, and a varied programme again guarantees more than eight hours of great entertainment this time around, featuring four very different country music acts.

In a change to the previously-advertised line-up, organisers have unveiled Nathan Carter, pictured right, Ireland's newest and brightest young singing star - to perform at the festival. He replaces Dusty Rhodes, who has had to pull out due to illness.

Also taking to the stage will be Nashville Sounds, who have become one of the most sought-after bands in clubs and at festivals around the country.

The line-up also features Frank McCaffrey, from County Mayo; while Kessingland's Kevin Barry will be making the short trip to keep his strong following happy. There'll be a chance for line-dancers to display their talents on the huge dance floor at Pontin. Music starts at 1pm and goes on through the day until 9pm. Admission is £10 for adults, accompanied children free. There is a large, free car park.

The event replaces the festival held annually at Sparrow's Nest Gardens in June, and all profits go to Lowestoft Hospital.

Tickets are available on 01986 873854, 07903 137059 or from Pontin's on weekdays in office hours.
