THREE days of entertainment are lined up at Norbury Canal Festival.
Last year’s event was so successful that organisers decided to extend it to include the May Day bank holiday Monday.
A larger marquee has been booked and it will be used for a band night on Saturday, May 5.
On the bill will be Radio Mary, a five-piece folky/blues band and Broombusters, a rhythm and blues, rock and roll and reggae infusion band.
On the Sunday evening a comedy night will be headlined by Bill Wooland and late on Monday afternoon there will be all the thrills and excitement of international tag wrestling.
Tickets for each event will be £5 in advance or £7.50 on the night and there is a discounted ticket of £12 pre- paid for all 3 events.
Throughout the three-day event there will be traditional craft and food stalls and refreshments in the garden of the Norbury Junction Inn, on the canalside and in and around Norbury Wharf.
Extra land has been borrowed from British Waterways to fit in extra stalls On the water there will be a number of boat traders together with a gathering of traditional and working narrow boats.
The popular cheese boat will again be moored in front of the Junction Inn.
Visitors will have the opportunity to look inside some of the narrow boats to see what life is like on board.
There will also be plenty of fun for youngsters. There will be a bouncy castle, face painting, funfair rides and water games.
On Sunday Burton Borough Brass Band will play through the afternoon followed at 3.30pm by the traditional canalside church service. Parking is available nearby.
