He's the roguish pirate known the world over for his swagger and adventurous spirit.

And now Captain Jack Sparrow is on his way to Cromer for the grand reopening of a community store - well, almost.

Simon Newton, who was Johnny Depp’s double for the swashbuckler in Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides, and is currently doubling for the star in a follow-up to the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts, will appear at the Suffield Park One Stop on Saturday (June 16) from 10am to midday.

The store, which incorporates a post office, was previously a Spar.

Andy Mills, owner, said everyone was welcome to come down and have their photo taken with Mr Newton, who will be in costume as Jack Sparrow.

He said there would also be a face painter and children’s games, along with a ribbon-cutting by Jack Sparrow and the winners of a colouring competition.

He said: “It will be a great opportunity for everyone to down and have their photo taken with him.”

The store is in Mill Road.
