Crowning the Carnival Queen
Jimmy Cricket had a dual role when he visited Cromer, a coastal resort in north Norfolk.
In addition to appearing in the theatre on the seaside town’s pier, the Irish comedian was also asked to crown the Carnival Queen!
Jimmy said: “I have always enjoyed visiting Cromer. I really love the theatre which has become a bit of a bastion of the ‘end-of-pier summer season revue’.
“This type of variety format has been maintained in the resort for years. Cromer’s shows have a fine reputation and are not only supported by day trippers, but also by locals from the north Norfolk region.
“With so many resorts not opting to present a summer season family production any more, Cromer continues to buck the national trend.
“This really proves that an audience can be developed for such a show and that people will come back every year to support the theatre.”
