Norwich Playhouse

> Norwich Playhouse

This Norfolk dialect extravaganza not only kept the audience chuckling but also raised money for children and families in Norfolk and Norwich via Families House.

Keith Skipper made a chatty compere, threading between acts with anecdotes of fellow Cromer dwellers.

The acts were a mixture of comedy, song, poetry and story. Danny Platton bought us famous numbers by the Singing Postman alongside his own heartfelt ballads of Cromer.

You may also want to watch:

Gal Liza and Mawther Sheilah mardled on with some wry observations about Norwich; David Woodward read us stories of traditional Norfolk life with a lovely deep voice and strong accent; Brian Patrick wrote a kind of oration on Horatio's Norfolk for Nelson's bicentenary; and Ian Prettyman topped the whole thing off with some sea shanties – all threaded together with Norfolk wit.

After the Mayor had drawn the raffle, the show continued with stand-up comedy from the Norfolk Nut, along with the Toff of Toftwood and the Bard of Bodham.
