The jazz concert with Pangaea, at Castle Acre Village Hall, is the final live event of the year.

Four successful music events have been organised this year to raise funds for the village hall.

Pangaea is a jazz quintet inspired by music from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, experimental American jazz and beyond.

Pangaea is a band started in January 2010 and recently re-formed.
