As Sir Cliff Richard once sang "We're all going on a summer holiday".

And now fans of the classic 60s pop music film can enjoy its songs as the movie is brought to life in Great Yarmouth and Sheringham.

Summer Holiday will see actors perform hits from the film in Great Yarmouth, Reydon and Sheringham.

The show is being hailed as the perfect way to get in the summer mood with people being uplifted by singing along to such hits as Bachelor Boy and Foot Tapper.

The launch of the show saw a vintage double decker bus similar to that from the 1963 movie stationed outside St George's Theatre on Wednesday.

Performers dressed in 1960s garb danced by the mayor of the borough to the sounds from Sir Cliff's classic movie, which also starred Melvyn Hayes and Una Stubbs.
