Cromer Pier has announced plans to host a sixties festival on March 30 next year, bringing back all the music, fashion, vehicles, dancing, stalls and memorabilia from the era.

Francis Guildea, the pier’s general manager, said the festival followed a similar event in 2017. He said: “We are very excited to see the return of this great event and hope to see it build into a real community celebration in the years to come.

“For 2019 we will be reaching out to the chamber of trade to see how other businesses in the town might like to be involved and we hope it will be a really fun atmosphere whether you are five or 95.”

Cover band Rock the Lobster will play, sixties pirate radio legends will share stories, there will be an original full-size Dalek and Cyberman from Doctor Who as well as £1 pints.
