After being closed for seven months, Peggotty's in Great Yarmouth will begin trading again on Saturday (September 14).

Landlord Blendi Kellici has said customers will get a taste of celebrity treatment, with a photographer taking their pictures as they enter the venue.

Entertainment will include live music, circus performers from Out There Festival and a DJ.

Mr Kellici has been refurbishing the bar, a King Street staple, for three months.

"I feel very proud but most importantly I have a good team," he said.

The revamp even includes a burger van - lowered by crane through the roof onto the dancefloor - where a chef will fry burgers and chips.
