Festival Too’s grand finale saw pop rock band Busted perform to  one of the biggest crowds in the free event’s 32-year  history.

 A packed Tuesday Market Place in King’s Lynn rocked to songs such as Year 3000, Air Hostess and What I Go to School For.

James Bourne, Matt Willis and Charlie Simpson began their hour-long performance at around 10pm last Saturday.

Festival Too chairman Alan Taylor said: “They were really gracious lads and they looked forward to performing in Lynn.

“They liked the idea of it being a free festival and Matt Willis said the people of King’s Lynn should be proud of the town. The Tuesday Market Place was at capacity and Matt said on stage as he saw the crowds, ‘this is a big wow’.”

Mr Taylor said the crowd of thousands was reminiscent of past successful festivals.

He said: “Some of the long-standing committee members said it reminded them of when Suzi Quatro performed.”

Before the trio’s performance, support acts Twin Wild and Battle of the Bands winners Flint Moore warmed the crowds up with their performances.

Mr Taylor paid tribute to those who helped make this year’s Festival Too one to remember.

He said: “I would like to give my thanks to everyone involved – the stewards, the public, the borough council and the cleaners who hung around and got the market place ready for the next day.”

Mr Taylor added: “To continue in the same way for next year  we need to raise £85,000 and see who is touring.”
