POP fans from across the North gathered to see pop superstars Steps take to the stage at Lytham Festival. And the boot-scooting 90's favourites did not fail to disappoint.

Blasting out some of their biggest hits, Steps fans young and old danced along on Lytham Green to 5,6,7,8, One for Sorrow, Deeper Shade of Blue and Tragedy to name but a few.

Starting their show dressed in bright pink the unmistakable Steps did what they do best: CHEESE!

With matching outfits not much different to those from their heyday, the band led by Claire Richards took music fans back in time to the 90s.

The now 30-something-year-old fans who were once teenagers dancing to these tunes in their bedrooms were transported back to their youth.

The crowd at the family-friendly festival were all in good spirits with many in the party mood.

The infectious pop songs that got the crowds dancing back in the 90s also did the job in 2018.

The only criticisms I could make is Steps spent too long changing outfits - at least four costume changes in 90 minutes and they tried to introduce new music.

All the fans wanted to hear were the big hits - in a real blast from the past.

These infectious pop hits were not the only songs to get the crowd dancing.

Dutch-party band The Vengaboys warmed up the crowds with hits including The Vengabus and We're Going to Ibiza.

Whigfield famous for her pop track Saturday Night also made an early appearance.

Lytham Festival runs until Sunday evening.

Award-winning musician and singer-songwriter George Ezra will be joined by the stunning voice of Emeli Sandé tonight, supported by singer-songwriter Rae Morris.

Tomorow night sees legendary musician Nile Rodgers and his band Chic headline an uber cool night of disco, hip hop and rock.

They will be supported by special guests 80s pop chart toppers Bananarama and Grammy Award winners Soul II Soul.

And to close the week-long event on Sunday, international quartet Il Divo will headline. They will be joined on stage with special guest Olivier Award-winning West End star, singer and actress Martine McCutcheon and the Heart of England Orchestra.
