A fantastic line-up and dry weather saw thousands of people attend the final weekend of Festival Too in King’s Lynn.

Friday night, headlined by The Hoosiers and Toploader, saw the Tuesday Market Place packed with people, but the stars of the show this year were Scouting For Girls.

Playing to this year’s largest audience, the band belted out all their hits, including Elvis and James Bond, on Saturday night, finishing with an encore performance of She’s So Lovely.

“The audience participation was brilliant, with everyone singing the lyrics back at the band,” said Festival Too chairman Derek Harvey.

“The atmosphere was electric and the crowd matched the turnout for Blue last year.”

Mr Harvey said the festival, now in its 29th year, had been a real success overall, with a great atmosphere and well-behaved crowds.

“Once again, the weather was kind to us and the crowds turned out in their thousands to watch.

“We had people of all ages from the length and breadth of the country, including festival-goers from as far afield as Manchester and Surrey, coming to King’s Lynn to share our free entertainment.

“We are all wondering how we can top it next year.”

After a short break, the committee will begin planning Festival Too 2015 in September, when Bridget Nurse is due to take over as chairman.

Mr Harvey added: “I have had a wonderful couple of years as chairman and wish Bridget the best of luck.

“I would like to thank all our sponsors, acts and everyone who contributed to the bucket collection. Our thanks also go to  West Norfolk Mayor Barry Ayres, who came on stage on Saturday to say a few words.

“We can’t wait to do it all again next year.”
