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.

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.'
