And now tribute band The Sex Pistols Experience is bringing a bit of 'anarchy' back to the seaside town for an anniversary gig at Cromer Social Club.

The show will take place on December 23, almost exactly four decades since the Sex Pistols played in Cromer to a capacity crowd of fans, and police, on Christmas Eve, 1977.

The four-piece tribute band also played at town's social club last year, drawing many punk lovers who were at the original Sex Pistols' gig.

Tickets for the show, which starts at 9pm, are £15, call 01263 512542 or visit www.seetickets.com to book.
