The third Hoxne Music Festival, near Eye, has a range of top-class performers lined up for the end of May.

Concert guitarist Richard Durrant will open the event on Friday, May 25, at 7.45pm at St Peter & St Paul church. His unique style includes a giant screen projection of visual digital video and lighting effects.

Stuart Jarrold, chairman of the festival committee, said: “He is a multi-instrumentalist, celebrating music by the likes of Django Reinhardt, Claude Debussy and Los Paraguayos, and his show is light years from what you might expect a classical guitar recital to be.”

There will be a free music event on the village green on Saturday, May 26, from 2pm, with performances by the Castleton Brass Band, the Village Voices choir and the brass ensemble with children from the primary school.

Tribute band The Kings of Queen will perform in St Edmunds village hall Saturday evening.

The Doric String Quartet will perform pieces by Haydn, Bartok and Beethoven at St Peter & St Paul church on Sunday, May 27, from 7.30pm. Violinist Alex Redington is a former pupil of Hartismere School, Eye.

Hoxne Parish Council and Suffolk County Council are among those who have contributed grants to keep ticket prices down.

The Richard Durrant concert is £10 in advance (£12 on the door); Kings of Queen, £10 (£12); Doric String Quartet, £12 (£14). A weekend ticket for all three concerts is £25.

Tickets available at Hoxne Post Office and Stores in Low Street, tel 01379 668254. More information on 01379 668317 or at www.hoxne.net.
