Folk fans, singers and musicians flocked to a north Norfolk pub for the opening night of the area’s newest folk music session.

A total of 19 performers took part in the first night of Cromer Folk Club held at The Cottage, Louden Road.

A second session will be held tomorrow night from 8pm when all will be welcome and entrance will be free.

Organiser Merv Abel dedicated the evening to the memory of his good friend Neil Batchelor, a retired bank manager of West Runton, who had died just the day before. Mr Abel said afterwards the opening session had been “a cracking start”.
