Dereham Blues Festival 2018

We will be the headline sponsor once again for this years Dereham Blues Festival

A bit about the festival…

The Dereham Blues Festival (DBF) came to life in July 2013 and has since then being growing evermore popular among the Dereham community as well as further afield. With a variety of local and international bands it was only a matter of time before this great festival became notable on the national blues scene. Organised by two of the Norfolk Blues Society’s founding members Doreen & Stuart Aitken for the first 2 years, it became apparent that with the festival’s success it needed more than 2 people to run it. In 2016 a committee of volunteers was put together to help. Still affiliated with the Norfolk Blues Society, the festival has become a company in its own right and is a registered not-for-profit company.

The festival takes place over four days (12th – 15th July) and hosts more than 50 top UK and Norfolk bands playing in, and sponsored by, 14 free entry venues all in the centre of Dereham. There are a variety of different acts performing this year including the opening act Georgie Fame!

Here at Busseys, we feel we have a close connection to Dereham since we opened our Ford branch in 1996 and added our Dereham Peugeot branch just 2 years ago. The town has always been very supportive and that’s why we are honored to sponsor such a local event.

We can’t wait for a weekend full of great music!
