Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial, Customer Services and Train Presentation Director, said: “We always want to support large local events where possible. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to travel to the concerts by train.

“To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel.

“Our new trains are longer and have more seats, however we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on these services.”
