A concert on Cromer Pier featuring a variety of local talent has raised about £2,800 for two Norfolk charities.
The event, in the pier's Pavilion Theatre, was the fifth organised by Graham Jones, of Antingham, including three staged at Sheringham Little Theatre.
An audience of nearly 270 enjoyed comedian Pat Nearney, classical soprano Hayley Moss, bands Tap the Barrel, Cutting the Mustard and Hollowlands, and a special appearance by Cromer resident Priscilla Dorothy who sang Wouldn't It Be Loverly, from the musical My Fair Lady.
'It was a brilliant night. People were saying very nice things about it as they were leaving,' said poet, writer and after-dinner speaker Mr Jones, who compèred the event.
Profits will be shared between The Benjamin Foundation, which helps people in Norfolk and Suffolk with many of life's challenges, and Break, which supports young people and their families across East Anglia.
