In charge was Naomi Katze who has been organising Rainbow Festivals for the last four years.

She said: “I do it to promote local small businesses. It’s grown considerably since the start.”

Other festivals are held over a wide area stretching from King’s Lynn to Fakenham and Wisbech.

“It’s mystic, holistic and artistic,” she said. “We’ve got everything from pottery, needlework and a wide range of arts and crafts.”
