People have been taking to a town's park to be entertained by fantastic live music and a fun fair.

Fun in the Park started in The Walks in King's Lynn on August 27 to offer a family-friendly bank holiday weekend of free live music, and to encourage people back into the town.

The event, which will continue until August 30, is being put on in collaboration with Festival Too.

Promised to be the "biggest and best" weekend yet, the event also includes a giant fun fair, food and drink stalls.
