Lifestyles Festival was back with a splash at the weekend, bringing with it three days of high-octane activities, live bands and have-a-go sessions.

Hundreds of families from West Norfolk and further afield flocked to Hunstanton for the extreme sports festival, which returned to the coastal resort after a one-year absence.

Top kite surfers took part in British Kitesports national competitions with festival-goers having the chance to watch extreme climbing, parkour, BMXing and skateboarding displays, and have a go themselves. The Green also hosted live music and a Volkswagen show.

Chairman of the Lifestyles Association committee, Liz Pendleton, said: “It was a wonderful weekend. We were delighted to see so many people witness some excellent kitesurfing and some great displays. We’ve worked incredibly hard over the past two years to ensure Lifestyles was able to return and I’d like to say a huge thank-you to all our sponsors. I’d also like to thank more than 100 volunteers who helped us.”

The festival was first held in 2005 and was cancelled last year because of funding and management problems. Extreme sports fans helped raise more than £20,000 through a public fundraising campaign .
