One of Britain’s most successful 
pop groups from the 1960s, Herman’s Hermits, is dropping into Cromer during its 50th anniversary tour.

From the beginnings in Manchester in April 1964, the band has chalked up more than 23 top twenty single records, 10 hit albums, three major movies and countless television shows and concert tours all over the world.

To date they have total record sales topping 75 million.

And on Sunday they are appearing at the Pier Pavilion.

The Hermits dominated the mid 60s music scene along with the The Beatles and Rolling Stones.

Even after the departure in 1971 of frontman Peter Noone to pursue a solo career, the group never stopped.

Original member Barry “The Bean” Whitwam has guided the group from strength to strength into one of the hardest-working bands in the business.

They still average more than 200 gigs a year – and reckon they maintain their stamina by having an amazing sense of humour.

Their touring schedule takes them to Germany, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Scandinavia, Japan, USA, Canada, Australia and new Zealand on a regular basis.

But they also still find time to perform in the UK, packing in the audiences with their musicianship, vocals and stage presence. Much to the enjoyment of their fans, the “golden oldies” still make up a large part of their concerts.

They include their number one hit from August 1964 Something Good, along with There’s A Kind Of Hush, No Milk Today, Something Is Happening, Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, Dandy, Can’t You Hear My Heart Beat, Sunshine Girl and Henry VIII.

The Herman’s Hermits Cromer show starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available from the 
box office on 01263 512495 or
