Cromer Christmas show review

Review by Richard Batson.

What’s on your Christmas list? Dancing penguins? Magic? Jokes? Singalong songs? Or a bloke who plays tunes on a traffic cone?
All the above obviously, and they are all wrapped up in a truckload of festive fun and glitter in this year’s Cromer Pier Christmas Show.
I had the privilege of attending opening night which deservedly drew a standing ovation.

The traditional mix of comedy, choreography, and a music from banging bang up to date pop to West End showstoppers and haunting classical is all there – but in a deep-filled luxury mince pie of a show.

It wouldn’t be the same without the Norfolk squit and wit of habitual headliner Olly Day – the show is the perfect vehicle for his all round talents and warm repartee.

Pier favourites Rob McVeigh and Emily Yarrow blend well as the main singers, and Leo Shavers adds the variety speciality act twist with his array of instruments.

Add in the superb dancers, cute local children, stunning sets, costumes, and classy lighting you have one of deviser Di Cooke’s best ever Christmas gifts to Cromer show-goers. You won’t need to ask for the receipt.

This is one of the best. Don’t miss out.
