Scores of music lovers were at Market Place on Saturday to enjoy a string of live performers including Fried Pirates, Caroline Gilfillan, Fakenham Ukes and Anto Morra.

Richard Crook, chairman of organisers, Active Fakenham, said: It went really well. Everybody had a good time and we had a very eclectic mix of music ranging from the ukuleles, folk and a group of youngsters from the academy who were playing rock music from the Seventies and Eighties.

"It was probably the biggest turnout we have ever had."

The music festival - run for the third time this year - is the opening event of Fakenham Active Week, which also features a dog show, archery, guided walks, yoga, squash and concludes with the Ride North Norfolk cycle on Sunday, August 25.
