Description

Festival Too is celebrating another year of bringing FREE entertainment to King´s Lynn in 2017.

History
Festival Too was born back in 1985, when a group of business people got together to put on a music event in town to complement the King’s Lynn Festival. In year one, the budget for this was £5,000, with local businesses sponsoring the top musical acts of the day. In recent years, the budget has grown to an impressive £80,000, still massively supported by donations from local companies, private individuals and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, as well as national names such as McDonald´s. The committee would also like to thank anyone who has put money into the Festival Too buckets when they have attended any of the nights.

Support and sponsorship
Festival Too is totally non-profit making. Every single penny raised is put directly back into the Festival itself to provide top quality FREE entertainment. The Festival now features fireworks on the opening night and a full programme of street entertainment on the three 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.

Previous year´s acts
With help and support from the local press and 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 Scouting For Girls, The Hoosiers, Blue, Atomic Kitten, Toyah Willcox, Deacon Blue, The Stranglers, Bad Manners, The Human League, Heather Small of M People thrill the audience.

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

This years festival will be held on Saturday 1st July, Friday 7th July, Saturday 8th July, Sunday 9th July, Friday 14th July and Saturday 15th July.

Festival Too 2017 kicks off on Saturday 1st July with FREE street entertainment at various sites in the King’s Lynn town centre during the day.

The action then moves to King Staithe Square, in the historic part of King’s Lynn.
The evening starts from 8pm with food stalls, children’s rides and plenty of classic tunes to warm the crowd up.

The fireworks, sponsored by Lovell, will start at 10.30pm (weather permitting) from the West Lynn side of the River Great Ouse.
