Jeff, from Big Red Boat, said: “On our travels round Suffolk we have met some amazingly talented songwriters and performers, which we have invited to come and play at this event. Acoustic-based music is on a big comeback at the moment and this is a perfect opportunity to show the people of Lowestoft the talent that is right here on our doorstep.”

Amongst the acts performing alongside Big Red Boat will be Beeba, Llewelyn, Miss Lisa Ambrose and Nevacain, as well as an open mic in the marquee.

The event will run from 12.30pm to 10.30pm and will feature a barbecue. Entry is £4.
