A Volkswagen festival with live music and plenty of activities for the youngsters is coming to Stowmarket after an absence of three years. 

Alive and V-Dubbing Festival will be coming to Haughley Park, just down the A14 from Stowmarket, and will be running from Thursday, June 9 to Sunday, June 12. 

The festival will feature three stages of musicians and DJs, as well as enough activities and sideshows to keep the whole family happy.

Naomi Wilcox, the festival's founder, said: "We are bringing Alive & V-Dubbin Festival back with a bang after a three-year gap.

"We are supporting local businesses and artists where possible, bringing you a quality event run by local VW enthusiasts who welcome everyone with a friendly smile and relaxed vibe.

"There is something for everyone with a varied range of performances and activities throughout the four-day event.

"Everyone is welcome and we are so excited to welcome everyone whether you choose to camp for two or three nights or visit for a day."
