Big band classics by Frank Sinatra and Glenn Miller and Dean Martin will be performed by popular performer Olly Day on Cromer Pier this week.

The swing concert, which will also feature the Jonathan Wyatt Big Band, will be held at the Pavilion Theatre on Friday, April 19 at 7.30pm.

Songs including The Lady is a Tramp, Come Fly With Me and Mack the Knife will be performed on the night.

The evening will also feature Olly Day's comical Norfolk stories.

Mr Day said: 'The Pavilion theatre is like a second home to me. I spend two months there every winter.

'It has such a magical atmosphere and when you get a laugh it rolls towards you from the audience like a big wave. It's a really magical place.

'I love working in Cromer, the people in north Norfolk are great and very loyal to the theatre. I am thrilled to be working there again.
