“The whole weekend has been very well received, people commented on how clean and beautiful Hunstanton is and we had some fantastic weather.

“Saturday’s KL1 Party on the Green and the live radio roadshow from KL1 Radio was extremely well received and the UK Bee Gees topped off a perfect day of bands, including Jay Harrison, VEX and 2nd Sunset.”

Michael Ruston, mayor of Hunstanton said: “The two day carnival has been a highlight and though it is very hard work to organise it is also fulfilling with 3,500 visitors coming along.”
