Norfolk's biggest free open-air summer music festival was brought to a rousing close by Eighties legends The Human League last night.

Crowds packed into King's Lynn's Tuesday Market Place to hear the electro popsters, who notched up 17 top 40 hits, including Don't You Want Me and Love Action. The band still has the same line-up - Phil Oakey, Joanne Catherall and Susanne Sulley.

The 21st Festival Too programme had also included performances by headline acts such as Bad Manners and Dr and the Medics, and local bands like Dynamite from Norwich and West Norfolk favourites Birkenhead, as well as free street entertainment in the town centre and a spectacular firework display.

The non-profit-making event, which is supported by West Norfolk Council and local businesses, has grown dramatically since it was launched as a complementary attraction to King's Lynn Festival.

“All in all I think you could say it was a great success,” said Festival Too treasurer Clive Dodds.
