Golfers teed off to raise funds for this summer’s free Festival Too at King’s Lynn.

Twelve teams competed at Middleton Hall Golf Club last Thursday in the annual tournament, organised by members of the festival committee.

The main sponsor was Vauxhall dealers Thurlow Nunn and competition winners were Flux’s Fliers.

Festival Too chairman Alan Taylor said: “Events like this are paramount to ensuring the sustainability of the festival and we urge everyone who attends this summer to give £2 for Festival Too by putting money in the collection buckets.

“We appreciate it is a free event but it takes in the region of £85,000 to stage.

“If we finish in the same financial position we did in 2017, we need to seriously look at how many dates we can put the event on next year.

“Costs have risen but we need to raise more to meet demand.”

The festival will start on Saturday, June 30 with live music, rides and food stalls from 8pm at King’s Staithe Square and a fireworks display at around 10.30pm.

It will continue on Sunday, July 1 with more live music.

The festival moves to the Tuesday Market Place on Friday, July 6 with outdoor entertainment which includes the Edwin Starr band and the Back in the Day After Party at the Corn Exchange.

Singer Pixie Lott will be the headline act on Saturday, July 7 and Friday, July 13 will feature The Sherlocks and other bands.

The final night, Saturday, July  14 will see multi-platinum band The Darkness complete this year’s line-up.
