Christmas is coming, and Cromer Pier has announced its line-up for its festive variety show.
The winter Seaside Special show is now in its eighth year and puts a covering of glitter and tinsel on the all-singing, all-dancing, comedy rich recipe which also thrills summer audiences.
Local all-round entertainer Olly Day, who has made the show his own, headlines for the fourth season, with his Norfolk-tinged wit, warm rapport and fine singing voice.
His comic sidekick is Jo Little a 4ft 10in tall comedienne with a big personality who will be joining in the banter.
Female singer is Lulu Alexander, who appeared in the show last year. She not only impressed with her singing and dancing, but is an accomplished ice skater and also went on to win the British figure skating championship in February despite being knocked down by a car during the winter show season.
She is joined by Cromer’s own Eddie Bushell ine male singing role, also making a return to the festive pier show.
The cast is completed by the usual team of Seaside Special Dancers.
The show runs from December 1 to 30 with 2pm and 7pm shows most days.
Tickets are £19.50-10, with reduced prices for concessions, children and families.

As the gates to the Royal Hospital Gardens at Chelsea opened to the world’s media yesterday, with a frenzy of activity as photographers and camera crews vied for the best vantage points, there was also a very palpable sense of relief among the hundreds of nurserymen and women who have come to exhibit their prize horticultural specimens that their stands were complete and looking their very best.
