A sell-out south Norfolk music festival saw local and well-known bands take to the stage to entertain the crowds.

The WoW Festival, held at Wolsey Bridge Fields at Burston, near Diss, celebrated its seventh year in style with a performance by The Undertones, fronted by Paul McLoone and who were supported by K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade.

Also playing were Gypsy Hill and the Cambridge-based CC Smugglers who are now heading off to join Bruce Springsteen on his European tour.

Dominique Marples, organiser, said: 'We had a variety of very high quality bands and musicians at WoW, from local band Chasing Creation to globally know bands like The Undertones and from the social media feedback it was the best WoW yet, and I can't disagree.'

The youngest visitor was a nine-week-old and the oldest performer was 83-year-old Peter Wilkins.

The event raised funds for Burston Primary School.
