Classic Bee Gees hits will be performed at an end-of-the-pier theatre next month by a top tribute act.
The Magic of the Bee Gees is coming to the Pavilion Theatre at the end of Cromer Pier on Sunday April 5 at 8pm.
And two lucky readers will have the chance of winning a pair of tickets to the show by entering our competition in this week's North Norfolk News.
The concert will feature all of the Bee Gees' million-selling hits including Night Fever, How Deep is Your Love, Jive Talkin' and Massachusetts.
Martin Spooner, who plays Robin Gibb in the show, said: 'No other British band has made as big an impact on pop music history.
'They shaped the sound of pop music in the 1960s, invented disco with the soundtrack of the film Saturday Night Fever in the 1970s and wrote career-defining hits for many other artists.'
These include number one hits Islands in the Stream, Grease and If I Can't Have You – recorded by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, Frankie Valli and Yvonne Elliman respectively.

All these songs will also feature in the show.
'Not only were the Gibb brothers prolific recording artists, notching up a reported 220m sales worldwide, they were master songwriters. Their music spanned three decades and their songs define pop music from a period that the world looks back on so fondly today,' Martin added.
The stars of The Magic of the Bee Gees claim that everyone has a favourite Bee Gees song.
Martin said: 'Youngsters in our audiences who dance and sing along to the Bee Gees' classics which are performed, wouldn't have been born when the Bee Gees originally released their hits. Yet they know every word of the majority of the songs.
'That underlines the genius and everlasting charm of Robin, Maurice and Barry Gibb – the greatest singer songwriters of our time.'
