Festival goers had a fabulous time hanging out at WoW Festival in South Norfolk at the weekend.

The festival - now in its eighth year - is held at the picturesque site of Woolsey Bridge Fields just outside Diss.

Families, friends and music lovers enjoyed listening to the varied line-up as they picnicked in the sunshine and danced away.

Children made juggling balls, loom bands, butterflies and clay models which they decorated in the children’s tent.

And there was definitely a community feel as festival goers caught up with friends they had seen at previous WOW festivals.

Bands played acoustic, roots, ska, bluegrass and everything in between, and the very best of local talent performed too.

Crowd-pullers included Morganway, Das Boot, hip-hop band Mouse Fit and Horseman - big on the reggae scene - and Ushti Baba.

Festival goers were treated to locally sourced food including homemade pizzas, bacon sandwiches, hotpots, curries, vegan dishes and even cake.

Festival organiser Geoff Dixon said: “ We provide the full festival experience but without the crowds and crushes.

At WoW you are never more than five minutes from your tent - you can stagger back and fall into it within minutes of leaving the festival.”
