Local music talent will come together tomorrow for the annual music festival, Park Alive, which takes place at the Park Pavilion in Diss.

Music will include popular local choir, Discord, who are no strangers to the concert, having performed in both 2013 and 2014.

In the build-up to the event, the group, led by musical director Michael Dann, formed a flashmob in Morrison’s in an attempt to gain publicity.

The free concert is set up by the Diss Rotary Club and became Park Alive in 2013, when organisers decided they wanted expand their audience having previously been run as Diss Proms in the Park.

The concert will also feature up and coming rock band, Twisted Piglet. The three piece have supported the likes of Lulu, Rick Astley and Scouting for Girls, having won the BurySound title in 2010.

Also taking to the stage are the Norfolk jazz band Dixie Mix.

Park Radio, fresh from being awarded a full-time broadcasting licence, will also be present, with DJ’s linking between the live music.

The main sponsors of Park Alive 2015 are John Doe, who have provided prizzes for the raffle.

Entrance to the event is from 5.45pm, with the performances starting at 6pm. Refreshments will be available in the form of a barbecue and bar.
