Successful Folk on the Pier festival in Cromer
Thousands of people descended to a seaside town for a popular folk festival this weekend.
Cromer's Folk on the Pier, in its 17th year, featured 18 established a new acts who played in the Pavilion Theatre at the end of the pier.
There were also scores of musicians, as well as members of the Friends of Norfolk Dialect (FOND) and step dancer Fiona Davies, who performed in venues around the town for the increasingly-popular Folk on the Pier fringe.
Festival producer Scott Butler said: 'From the feedback I have had from the audience, it is possibly one of the best ever festivals. We have had the usual mix of weather, which has not deterred people.
'As always there has been a good juxtaposition between fun and laughs and more serious songwriting and performance.'
He added he was extremely pleased with the 'ever-increasing enthusiasm concerning the fringe events.
Mr Butler said a big draw for musicians and visitors was the atmosphere and 'marvellous theatre'.
