Live music returned at the Norfolk Showground on Friday night with a homage to the Britpop years.
Visitors to the socially-distant one-day event, Common People Outside were treated to live music from Mark Morriss, lead singer of The Bluetones, Nigel Clark, frontman of Dodgy and Chris Helme of The Seahorses, along with a selection of classic Britpop tracks played by DJ Flob.
Between them, the trio had seven top 10 and 26 top 40 hits, with many of them played on the night.
As many as 350 people attended the event in their own cordoned off pods of up to 4 people, who were served by numerous bars and street food outlets throughout the night.
Jon Rogers, one of the organisers of Common People, a regular 90s night in Norwich, said: “To put on one of the only live outdoor gigs in the whole of the country, it needed to be special. The performances were wonderful and it was a real magical atmosphere. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves immensely. Who knows we might do it again!”
