PHOTO GALLERY: Former Sheringham Carnival queens urged to make royal appointment for this year’s event

The many branches of Sheringham's 'royal' family tree are being urged to relive their crowning glory by attending this year's carnival queen selection evening.

Sheringham Carnival organisers want to turn the annual event into a night of nostalgia, by gathering together as many as possible of the queens from the last 50 years.

They have already made contact with more than 20 from various decades of the long-running summer spectacular.

But they hope to gather even more, to give a boost to the selection dance and inspire more people to step forward to have a go at being in this year's royal family.

Carnival chairman Stuart McClean said: 'We want as many former carnival queens as possible to come along for a chat and to catch up with some old friends.

'We also hope to encourage them to take part in this year's parade in August.'

The selection dance is at 7.30pm on Friday April 13 at the Tyneside Club function room on Station Road, Sheringham. It will include dancing to the Liza Wolfe band, a buffet and a bar.
