Thousands of KT Tunstall fans packed into the Tuesday Market Place in King's Lynn for the second weekend of Festival Too, where she was performing.

Kicking off the festival on Saturday, July 8 were performances from support acts The Wise Naive, The Extons and Killamonjambo.

While fans eagerly awaited for the headline act to arrive on stage, there were plenty of activities and stalls around the square.

Young and old alike tried their hands - and feet - at rock-climbing, archery and beat the bar, with food and drink stalls for those wanting to relax in the warm evening.
