REFORMED: Busted will top the bill on the last night of Festival Too on Saturday, July 15

Festival-goers will be able to hop on to free buses for King’s Lynn’s Festival Too next month.

Bosses at Lynx buses have offered to provide an extra service at around 10.45pm after the finish of the grand fireworks display in King Staithe Square on Saturday, July 1.

The free services will be from the town to Hunstanton via South and North Wootton, Dersingham, Snettisham and Heacham.

There will also be extra late services on the traditionally busiest festival nights of  Friday, July 7, Saturday, July 8, Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15.

The sponsorship deal is to compliment the popular free-to-attend festival.

Festival chairman, Alan Taylor, said the gesture was “a great offer”.

“This is fantastic for festival-goers, very kind and appreciated. It is another great offer from a local business. Our thanks to the Lynx team.”

The 32nd festival, which will run from July 1 to 15, is expected to draw audiences of thousands from near and far.

Headline acts this year include The Real Thing (July 7), KT Tunstall (July 8), Space (July 14) and a finale on July 15 with top band, Busted (pictured).

There will also be family street entertainment on various days and  Lazy Sunday events on July 2 and 9.

The festival, which costs around £85,000 to stage, is run by a committee of dedicated volunteers.

Sponsorship and donations are key to the event being staged each year in the same format and last month, Mr Taylor  appealed to concert-goers to dig deep and support the event.

There will be bucket collections at all the events and Mr Taylor said donating just £1 would make a difference.

Donations can also be made through the festival’s Crowdfunding website.
