The theme of this year's Standon Calling Festival has been announced.

An exciting new narrative will take over the festival for a voyage that features headline performances from Suede, Jess Glynne and Kelis.

Organisers unveiled Legend of the Lost Seas as the story for 2016 at a special launch party at Vault Festival over the weekend.

Each year Standon Calling has raised the bar with its themes that stretch beyond the confines of fancy dress to set design, production, entertainment, actors and more.

Past themes have included Murder on the Standon Express, Running Away from the Circus, and A Town of Two Faces.
