Visitors to this year's summer Cromer Pier Show will be able to enjoy a musician of many talents in action.
It is the first year multi-instrumentalist Rachel King has performed in Europe's last remaining end-of-the-pier show, which ends on September 19.
She plays the violin, saxophone, flute, panpipes and piano.
Other show acts include comedian Paul Eastwood, vocalists Luke Walsh and Jane Watkins and the six-strong troupe of Seaside Special Dancers.
And the North Norfolk News is giving away two tickets to see a matinee performance of the show.
Mrs King, who lives near Norwich with her husband Andy and their two young sons, spoke to the news. Here are some of her answers.

I started performing when I was about eight-years-old. I used to put on shows with my brother, sister and dog. I have not stopped performing since then.
Where else have you performed in your career?
My first professional experience was playing keyboards in a band in Cardiff when I was a student. I performed in place of my tutor who owned the band and could not play that night.
What is your biggest professional achievement to date?
I have worked with many talented people over the years. Names I have worked alongside include Jess Conrad, the Krankies, Jimmy Cricket, Bernie Clifton, Olly Day and Nigel Boy Syer.
Where is the best place you have performed and why?
The best place I have worked in is Shanghai. I played on the top floor of the Hilton Hotel and saw the Chinese New Year in. It was the most spectacular thing I have ever seen.
