More news, no ads


Tickets are selling fast for a musical afternoon coming to Hunstanton's Princess Theatre headlined by Lonnie Donegan Jr in May.

The show, Those Were The Days, evokes memories of the 1950s and 60s, paying tribute to greatest entertainers of those golden years.

Lonnie sings the hit songs of his legendary father, the king of skiffle, who was the biggest selling British recording artist before the Beatles.

This nostalgic show is produced by musical entertainer Andy Eastwood, who is a familiar face at the seaside theatre, having played comic roles in three pantomime seasons, as well as guest appearances in the Ken Dodd Show.

He will perform his dazzling multi-instrumental act, as well as joining the rest of the cast for medleys of favourite songs.

Andy said: "There are many tribute shows portraying particular bands, but in Those Were The Days we’ve created a broader celebration of the range of entertainment that the 50s and 60s offered.

"It was a wonderfully diverse era for music, and we’ll cover everything from trad jazz to rock n roll, the Seekers and Morecambe and Wise.

"Lonnie Donegan was such an inspirational catalyst in the music scene, to have his son on stage with us is a thrill, the icing on the cake."

Also appearing will be singer Maggie O’Hara, who performs the songs of Doris Day, Connie Francis, Petula Clark and more, and the multi-talented Pete Lindup, who hosts the show with humour and amazing musical skills.

No variety show would be complete without live backing, and the Phil Jeffery Band is on hand to accompany the proceedings, featuring the world-class Michael Wooldridge on keyboards.

It promises an unmissable and uplifting afternoon of music and memories.
