News from Sheringham Little Theatre

The lights are burning bright again at Sheringham’s stage and screen.  With the Autumn programme well underway, the Little Theatre has an amazing array of attractions to look forward to. 

Our Panto will celebrate the end of this very long year with no less than twenty afternoon performances between 21st and 31st December when you can join Jack on his adventures up the Beanstalk.  Whatever else will be in short supply this Christmas, it won’t be fun and laughter in the Little Theatre’s show!  But with social distancing still in place in the auditorium there will be big gaps in the seats, so it’s best to book early to avoid disappointment.

More events for the youngsters come in half-term week.  The multi-talented Jez Bond brings his blend of comedy and magic to the Little Theatre with his Just Mucking About Show, a special spooky Halloween edition on 30th October, and just before that on 28th October the well-qualified Daisy Winchester hosts an all-day Halloween Workshop for 6 to 16 year-olds.  What better place for Drama tuition than in a real theatre?

On Tuesday evenings in November enjoy our selection of films starting with Summerland  on 2nd, Nobody on 9th, and In the Heights on 16th.  An additional bonus is a free screening of David Attenborough’s ‘A Life on Our Planet’ on Thursday 11th November at 7.30pm.  

A huge choice of live music has been laid on so there should be something for everyone’s taste.  With over 30 albums and 15 books to his name, well-known British folk singer Richard Digance invites you to spend an evening in his company on 12th November.  

How will the Rat Pack Singers recall the groovy decade of the 1960s?  You can find out on 26th November when there are bound to be some of your old favourites.  On 5th December you will have the first chance in two years to sing along with your best-loved Christmas carols and songs when the Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society take over the Little Theatre’s stage for the Sunday afternoon. 

More entertainment is provided by the local Little Theatre Players as they revive Radio Fun with a brand new selection of sketches, songs and poems on 19th and 20th November. 

At the beginning of December, the satellite dish will bring the silver screen to life with the very best from the world of culture.  The ballet classic of The Nutcracker by the full company of the Royal Opera House is screened on the 9th.  The English Chamber Orchestra with a stellar line-up of soloists perform Handel’s Messiah on the 11th.  This short series of screenings closes on 15th with Puccini’s best loved opera, Tosca.  

Contemporary Variety will be given the festive flavour on 18th December by Donimo and Monroe for a truly surprising cocktail of comedy, magic and music.  Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a healthy dose of the Albion Band.  They will give their unique guided tour of British Christmas customs on 20th December.

On our website you will also find full booking details for the county-wide tour of Rider Spoke from the Norfolk and Norwich Festival which comes to Sheringham for the first two weekends in November.  Bring your own or borrow their bike, or you can simply walk if you prefer, and they will lend you a smart phone for a truly memorable experience of Sheringham with a narrated tour with gentle music.  

You can always rely on Sheringham Little Theatre to bring you the best of the old and the best of the new.   All tickets can be booked online at

  • Sheringham / Cromer cliff-top path

    On a clear winter day a walk along the cliff tops offers an impressive 360⁰ view over both land and sea.

    Keep an eye out for kestrels on the wing and listen for cormorants as you follow the rolling coast path, meandering over close-cropped grass and scrubby thickets. During autumn these areas offer a prime location for foraging Sea Buckthorn.

    Bristly bushes with inch long spines may appear intimidating at first, but the tightly clustered berries, amber in colour, offer up a bounty to those who are willing to commit a bit of time and effort. Take along a sturdy tub and a pair of gloves and your cliff top walk will provide an abundance of culinary potential.


  • Sheringham cyclist owes life to East Anglian Air Ambulance

    Chris Marshall, aged 49, is a barber from Sheringham and father of two. In May last year Chris was involved in a life-threatening collision with a car near Cromer Golf Club, while he was out training for a 100-mile cycle challenge. When Chris’s wife was first notified about the accident, she was told Chris wasn’t likely to survive. 

    The accident happened around 11:30am on 12 May 2020. A team from the East Anglian Air Ambulance was tasked at 11:39am to provide critical care at the scene, landing on the Cromer Golf Club car park. The EAAA team worked for over an hour to deliver the enhanced pre-hospital care interventions required to give Chris a fighting chance. These included performing a thoracostomy, a procedure to release air to treat a collapsed lung, and anaesthetising Chris to take control of his breathing. 

    Chris had a suspected head injury and had broken several bones in his body. His injuries were classed as life-threatening and without the enhanced interventions of the air ambulance team, he would not have made it to hospital. 

    Fortunately, the team were able to stabilise Chris enough to be moved and he was flown to the major trauma centre at Addenbrooke’s for specialist treatment. Chris’ injuries were extensive and included three bleeds on the brain, several spinal fractures, including some damage to his spinal cord, a fractured pelvis, broken left shoulder blade, hip and ankle and several broken ribs on his right side. He has since suffered double vision, slurred speech and had to learn to walk and talk again. Chris also has nerve damage which still prevents him from fully lifting his arms up. 

  • Fin-tastic! EACH opens 40th shop in Sheringham

    There were great shell-abrations in Sheringham this morning as East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) declared its 40th shop of-fish-ially open.

    Mermaid Merchelle and Pirate Pete from Elite Productions’ A Mermazing Pirate Adventure, the show on at Sheringham Little Theatre this afternoon, cut the ribbon at the Station Road outlet. Customers then made waves as they flooded through the doors, spending £555 in the first hour.

    Naomi Munro, Shop Manager, said: “It was just mermazing scenes here for the ribbon-cutting and I think we’ve done a great job of really sea-zing the day. We couldn’t have fished for much more, that’s for shore.

    “The initial support from customers has been s’whale and we hope it won’t drift away going forward. The porpoise of this shop is to help bring in money for the care of children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the region, and support of their families.”

  • Holt Country Park, Pretty Corner Woods and Sadler’s Woods recognised amongst best UK open spaces

    Sadler’s Wood, near North Walsham, has re-joined Holt Country Park and Pretty Corner Woods in being recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world. 

    Holt Country Park holds its position as a green space for the 14th year running and was joined by Pretty Corner Woods in 2013. Sadler’s Wood first received the accolade in 2012 and despite just missing out last year it has now re-claimed its place thanks to the hard work of our Countryside Team.

    The parks are among a record-breaking 1,970 UK parks and green spaces and 131 in thirteen other countries around the world that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

  • Joyce proves you are never too old to keep fit

    Joyce Irvine proved you are never too old to keep fit as she celebrated her 90th birthday with friends at a seated exercise class held in Sheringham Library. 

    Joyce was surprised by her friends and fellow exercise class members who organised a celebration with chocolate cake, music and party hats, although she nearly uncovered the surprise when she arrived at the Library earlier than expected to return some books!

    As a founder member of the class, Joyce has been enjoying the benefits of seated exercise since the class was set up by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) in 2015 as part of its Sports Hubs and Clubs programme. The 45-minute session is designed for those who like to keep fit and enjoy a gentle workout while sitting down, and it is regularly attended by up to 15 members.
