Martin Gore's new book 'The Road to Cromer Pier' is about the lives and loves of the cast of the end of the pier show and draws on childhood holiday experiences.

Mr Gore said: "Writing a work of fiction about a real place is a real challenge. The Summertime Special Show is an iconic piece of British theatre, and the only full season end of the pier show left in the world.

"It is a West End standard show, so my story needed to reflect that too."

The book was written with the help of Cromer Pier Theatre management, and the launch coincides with the start of the new summertime special season.
