One a year, the town of Sheringham in Norfolk is taken over with colourful displays of dancing, folk music and processions.
The Potty Festival will see Morris sides from Norfolk and the surrounding counties, gather for the event, with traditional dancing styles including Longsword Dancing, Molly Dancing, and Border Morris being performed.
The festival itself will begin on Saturday with a lively Morris procession through the town at 10am. The rest of the day will see dancing taking place around the town, before an evening sing around in the Little Theatre Hub.
On Sunday, there will be Morris dancing from the town clock to the seafront during the morning. In the afternoon the dancing will continue at the Lifeboat Plain performance arena.
The Potty Festival was originally started by The Lobster Potties Morris dancers in 1993, by Reg Grimes, the then Squire (Chairman), Clive Rayment Foreman (Dance teacher) and Penny Shepherd Bagman (Treasurer), as a way of saying thank you to the sides that had invited the Potties to visit them.
The festival grows from strength to strength, now having more than 40 Morris sides taking part every year.
