The autumn season of touring shows returns to Cromer Pier on Saturday, October 9.

An autumn of music and comedy is set to return to the Pavilion Theatre at Cromer Pier after a coronavirus-enforced break of 16 months.

Deb Lewis, the pier's marketing, box office and retail manager, said the team is "absolutely thrilled to be staging the first of the autumn touring shows and welcoming our concert audiences back to the theatre".

There will be comedy with Ian Ashpital and Jonty Stephens as duo Eric and Ern, a 'Step Inside the 60s' with Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich and the Fortunes, and 'Rock for Heroes', a show dedicated to Help the Heroes charity.
