'We also have the bucket donations and we say if people feel like they have had a good time to put their hands into their pocket and donate so we can keep putting on this festival.'
Festival Too started in 1985 with the aim of providing free entertainment to the people and visitors of West Norfolk and is now one of Europe's biggest free festivals.
