The event, at Davenport's Magic Kingdom, Cromer Road, North Walsham, on September 20 at 7.30pm, will raise cash for a vital flood wardens service which help keeps vulnerable coastal communities safe.

WEVA - the Walcott Emergency Volunteer Association - is the UK's only independent flood warden scheme.

It has been in existence for more than 40 years and its members played an important role after the devastating storm tidal surge of December 2013.

Variety acts will include magician Roy Davenport, fire performer Oliver Garwood, 'The outrageous' Tina Bradshaw, and singer Amy Morris.
