Now it in its 31st year, the Tuesday Market Place will host artists including Odyssey, Phats & Small and The Vamps, whose fans are expected to travel across the country to see them.

Sunday from noon, billed as Lazy Sunday, will feature bands from the BBC Introducing scheme with the event being presented by Radio One DJ Sophie Little.

The 1000mph Bloodhound world land speed record car will also be on show and the Tuesday Market Place air raid shelter will be open for tours.

Bridget Nurse, chairman of the Festival Too organising committee, said: 'Opening night went really well. The fireworks were amazing and there was a good turnout. The weather was a bit suspect, with a few showers, but people put their brollies up and got on with it.
