A popular music event which saw a surprise appearance from Rag 'n' Bone Man at its last outing is back after 18 months.

The Later with Jools Holland-inspired show The Room will return to Gorleston's Ocean Room on Saturday, September 18.

The event sees musicians performing across multiple stages, with a full-sized grand piano being drafted in to celebrate the comeback.

Although The Room staged trimmed-back versions during the lockdown, it represents the first complete show for 18 months.
