IT will be a rock 'n' roll circus when the Needham Lake summer festival arrives in a few weeks time.
The line-up for the event on July 27 has been announced today and promises to have an enjoyable carnival-style blend of the musical and entertaining.
Acrobatic outfit, the Flying Dudes, whose 60-minute performance includes flying trapeze, vertical rope, hand-balance, martial arts and dance will headline the festival.
Meanwhile other entertainers will include stilt-walkers, the ever-popular Suffolk School of Samba, comedy duo the Invisible Men, a river-crossing, a psychic reader, Martinez and wild and wacky double-act Fabrega
A procession from the town's council offices to Needham Lake at midday will kick off the days events and will be led by members of the Suffolk School of Samba who will be encouraging members of the public to join in.
"It's a day where anything goes as long as its fun, family entertainment and adds to the carnival atmosphere," said Zoey Furzer, Mid Suffolk district council's arts development assistant.
