Music, magic and comedy will combine in a charity night boosting air ambulance funds.

This weekend's event is the latest to be organised by North Norfolk District Councillor and music fan Graham Jones.

Three previous evenings at the Sheringham Little Theatre raised more than £6,000 for the venue.

The next one on Sunday October 12 switches to the Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre and will help the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Music comes from Tina Wegg, a former district council officer, and her Playing the Cake band whose repertoire includes jazz and ballads.

They are joined by folk band Tap the Barrel, who Mr Jones chosen after hearing them busking in North Walsham.

Their fiddle player Tri will also do solo numbers.
