Next summer’s concert series at Cromer Hall will take visitors on a musical safari from Motown and Michael Jackson, through the peaks of the 1980s and onwards to the land of country and the ‘king of rock’.

The August gig series, which started in 2017 as the Cromer Hall Concerts, has been re-named Starlight Concerts for 2019 because the organisers are planning to expand across the UK, and have already added events in Dorset.

Nick Conrad, one of the organisers, said the concerts were here to stay on the north Norfolk coast.

He said: “We are delighted to have signed a five-year contract at our popular Cromer Hall venue. The support from the local community for our Starlight concert series has been fantastic. Our line-up next year, features a diverse range of acts paying homage to the worlds best music.”

Mr Conrad added: “Seeing thousands of people, of all different ages coming together to dance in the park is magical.

“This year we anticipate selling over 13,000 tickets to the three-day event.

“The majority of our customers travel into town specifically for the concerts. Hopefully these events, which I established two years ago, will continue to be a positive boost for Cromer and our hard-working local businesses.”

The Friday, August 2 concert will see performers including Roy G Hemmings, the lead singer of supergroup The Drifters, take the stage, along with Michael Jackson tribute act Ben Bowman and a host of others performing Motown hits.

Saturday, August 3 will feature the group Wild Boys belting out hits from that iconic musical decade, the 1980s, in between sets from tribute gigs playing the hits of Madness, Boy George, Madonna and Tina Turner.

And on Sunday, August 4, arena-performers Dominic Halpin and The Hurricanes will put on their A Country Night in Nashville show playing his from Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, John Denver, Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift, before a gig by Elvis impersonator Gordon Hendricks.

Alan Barker, the shows’ technical director, said: “We’re giving people not just one act on any given night but two or three. This worked really well with our Abba and Queen show earlier this year.”
