Festival Too - Free Entertainment

Festival Too is celebrating its 27th year in 2012 and bringing FREE entertainment to King´s Lynn.

In 1985 a group of local business people got together believing that there was a need for a popular music event in the town and Festival Too was born. In year one the budget was £5,000 and in recent years over an impressive £80,000!

Festival Too is a sponsorship driven event and is totally non-profit making. Every single penny raised is put directly back into the Festival itself.

We have over 250 sponsors, from The Borough Council of King´s Lynn and West Norfolk, national companies such as McDonalds as well as local companies and private individuals alike.

We provide FREE street entertainment on the Saturdays of the Festival so that families visiting the town can enjoy such activities as clown shows, jugglers, puppets and balloon modelling whilst shopping and getting ready for the evening´s entertainment.

With help and support from the local press as well as local radio, we publicise the event well in advance of Festival Too, ensuring as many people come along and enjoy the free event as much as possible. Regular crowds of over 10,000 have seen acts such as The Hoosiers, The Feeling, The Wanted, Atomic Kitten, Toyah Willcox, Deacon Blue, The Stranglers, Bad Manners, The Human League, 10cc, Heather Small of M People thrill the audience.

Do you want to help make Festival Too better in 2013? Look for the team with their Festival Too collection buckets on Festival Too events. Every penny raised will go towards future entertainment.

Come along and enjoy one of Europe´s largest FREE festivals!
