This year's Festival Too will see big names like Busted and KT Tunstall performing on stage in King's Lynn in one of Europe's biggest free festivals.

The annual festival begins this Saturday with the Bootleg Bee Gees in King's Staithe Square followed by a grand fireworks display.

Sunday will see a jazz-themed afternoon with performances by East Anglian bands Redemption and DixieMix, a first for Festival Too.

Police have issued safety tips ahead of the festival, with previous events attracting crowds of almost 12,000 people to the Tuesday Market Place.
