Dancers, singers, a comedy magician and traditional family festive entertainment is coming to an end-of-the-pier theatre this month.

The Cromer Pier Christmas Show at the Pavilion Theatre has started and finishes on Saturday December 27.

It will star one of Britain's best singers, Lyn Paul, from New Seekers fame, popular entertainer Olly Day, Cromer singer Eddie Bushell, and comedy magician Benson.

Eddie has lived in Cromer almost all his life and has always enjoyed entertaining.

After taking part in several amateur theatre appearances he was asked to be part of Richardson's Holiday Village Christmas show in Mundesley.

After two successful seasons at Mundesley, Eddie began to take cabaret bookings as a singer and keyboard player and worked abroad, including three years on the Algarve in Portugal.

Returning to Cromer, Eddie auditioned for the Cromer Christmas Show in 2005 and began his long association with the show and fellow performer Olly Day.
