During the day we have some great local bands to enjoy whilst you browse local food producers wares, play games with your little piglets, sup on some Norfolk craft beers and taste some extraordinary porky delights. By night, we have two stages of music with a brilliant line-up bands; many listed below.

Himazas are the ukulele duo from Norwich who perform ditties mainly from the twenties and thirties with short excursions into other more ‘modern’ decades.
Here at Porkstock we love switching things up a bit, and have heard incredible things about a Sax player going by the name of Edwin Pope…
He’s agreed to come down, and show us what he can do…. And we can’t wait.

Evening Knees up
Tallulah & The Good Times Republic
Holy moly we have Tallulah and her brigade back. Last year we invented the “electro swing gin palace” and it was simply awesome. This year we are giving her a whole abandoned barn to blitz with her electro swing vibes. Her DJ skills and energy are backed up with live trumpets, saxophone and guitars to get you going. She has now amassed over half a million plays of her music and mixes on Soundcloud, and with over 1800 followers, she is undoubtedly the Queen of Electroswing. Her mix, “SwangYoThang2” is one of the most listened to electroswing mixes in the world. Get ready Porkstock!
