Evergreen singers the Bachelors are to star in this year's charity Midnight Matinee at Cromer Pier.

The band were a top stage and recording act in the 1960s and 70s with 17 hits to their name, but are still touring as far as Australia and doing regular summer seasons at Blackpool.

On Friday, August 12, they will join the cast of Cromer's Seaside Special for a special late night money-spinning show raising funds for Cromer Carnival, the Water Rats and the children's holiday-of-a-lifetime charity Dreamflight.

Founder Bachelor John Stokes said their popularity waned during the late 80's and they had some difficult decisions to make, to continue or to update with modern pop songs.

But he maintained the belief that their market was with a mature audience and that their hit songs would stand the test of time if presented in a more entertaining way.

Their success now sees the Bachelors once again in demand for theatre and cabaret venues, including six summer seasons in seven years at the North Pier Theatre, Blackpool, and touring Australia each year since 1998.

The Seaside Special cast will be performing having already completed an evening performance and ahead of doing matinee and evening shows on the Saturday.

Also on the bill is North Norfolk Radio presenter Sue Marchant, who will be singing.

Tickets for the 11.45pm show cost £20 and are available through the box office on 01263 512495.
