The Saturday night show, by the James Bond Concert Spectacular, was part of this year’s Lowestoft Summer Festival – and attracted the event’s biggest audience to date.

Earlier in the day the festival held its popular sandcastle building record attempt.

A large number of families and youngsters descended on the beach south of Claremont Pier with buckets and spades at the ready to smash the previous record of 1,574, which was set in 2016.

Despite having to contend with powdery sand courtesy of the recent heatwave a record 1,667 sandcastles were built.

The festival promotes the town by showcasing the best local organisations and charities.

And throughout the weekend the Royal Green and seafront were filled with people enjoying the array of food, market and craft stalls.
