The Dereham Blues Festival is back in July later this year (July 6th to 10th) featuring not one, but two fantastic UK top blues acts for the opening concert on July 6th at The Dereham Memorial Hall. The two acts, When Rivers Meet, who are based in the region and originally from Downham Market, and Kyla Brox, both playing with their backing bands, are real rising stars at the top of their game on the UK blues scene with many recent awards under their belts.
See https://www.derehambluesfestival.org.uk for more info about this "free-to-attend" festival. It takes place on July 6th to 10th in and around Dereham. This year will see some 19 Dereham town centre and nearby venues hosting some 50 of the best blues acts drawn from the region and across the UK. So still very much "a whole lot more than 12 bars of blues".
The festival is a not-for-profit organisation entirely run by volunteers and attracts an estimated 2000 fans over the festival period.
