A tent at a music festival in Norwich has been closed to under 18s in the interests of safety.

The Lockdown stage at Sunday Sessions festival, held at Earlham Park, has been closed to children.

The festival, featuring artists including Tom Odell and Gabrielle Aplin, came as part of a weekend of live music, with retro festival Let’s Rock held on Saturday.

The festival posted on social media about the news, and said: “In the interest of safety, particularly for the younger members of our audience, we have made the decision to make the Lockdown stage over 18s only.

“We are sorry if this has caused upset for anyone, but we are sure you understand that the safety of everyone here today is paramount.”

One person commenting on the post said they had seen a fight break out in the tent.
