The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has agreed to extend its residency at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre.

The orchestra, which next year presents concerts celebrating its 65th anniversary, has been involved with the theatre since 2005.

Martin Halliday, chief executive of the Marina Theatre Trust, said: "It's absolutely wonderful news.

"It means the people of Lowestoft are treated to some fantastic music with world class musicians and soloists."

Ian Maclay, managing director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, said: "We are thrilled to extend our association with the Marina Theatre.

"As resident orchestra, we continue to enjoy the loyal support of audiences from Lowestoft and the surrounding areas, and we look forward to working with the new Marina Theatre Trust to build upon the huge success we have enjoyed since our partnership began."
