The Let’s Rock Norwich! sell-out gig has kicked off at Earlham Park for the first year.

Some 15,000 revellers have flocked to the park with many dressed up in brightly-coloured outfits and are being entertained by television personality Dave Benson Phillips between acts.

Jeni Choose, 53, from Bungay, was with three of her friends at the festival.

Mrs Choose said: “We are really chuffed with the line-up. We have already let Captain Sensible in the crowd who told us he has cracked a rib from a previous gig.

“1980s music makes you feel good and young again.

“Everyone is friendly here. It is nice that something like this is happening on our doorstep. We are reliving our youth.”

Married couple Liz and Neil Hutchings, 45 and 46 respectively, were dressed up for the occasion.

Mrs Hutchings said: “I’m 80s through and through. Tony Hadley is my man.

“The atmosphere today is amazing. We were a bit worried about being too dressed up but that seems to be the norm today.”
