The Only Full Season End Of Pier Show In The World!
The famous Pavilion Theatre is one of only five UK end of pier theaters and home to the award winning Cromer Pier Show, the only full season end of pier show in the world. Take the 151 metre walk along the pier to the theatre and sit in one of our 500 traditional theatre seats. Once sat comfortably it is time to embark on a magical experience with a fusion of traditional and contemporary variety. Expect all the glitz and glamour worthy of the only full season end of pier show in the world, the finest production values, rib-tickling comedy, show-stopping vocals, mind-blowing specialty acts and an eclectic blend of dance!
We are extremely proud to have been positively reviewed over the years and recently the show was given a wonderful 4 star review by Robert Gore-Langton from the Daily Telegraph. He comments on the variety of the show mentioning “stand-out vocalists”, “a very funny, old-school Essex comic” and “the musical director who drives the show through its variety”. He finishes his piece saying “The pier rightly cherishes its seaside tradition of family entertainment that’s as delicious as Cromer’s famous crab sandwiches.”
In the show’s 46 year history, we have been lucky enough to have had household names developing their careers here, including the legend Bradley Walsh, herecently said on ITV’s This Morning that he owed his career to a wonderful theatre on the end of a pier in Cromer. Steve Hewlett, the hilarious and fabulously entertaining ventriloquist, who starred in the finals on Britain’s Got Talent 2013 and entertainer Darren Day to name but a few. The Cromer Pier Show is nationally famous as an “incubator” of talent for dancers, singers, actors, magicians, comedians and other variety acts, a feature on performers bucket lists all over the world.
Production values are extremely high. Just one of our 22 intelligent lights that can change colour, move and show up different shapes cost an eye watering £14,000. This was achieved by, lights that can project two images at once and have RGB LED wash light built in. They cost an incredible £22,000 each. Our summer show season typically includes over 150 costumes, 48 pairs of shoes, 40 pairs of tights, 33 hats, 31 fascinators and 24 petticoats, all made by just two people! The record for the quickest costume change took just 17 seconds! We also use 100KGs of glitter and 220 metres of LED lighting on stage sets which will, on average take a scenic artist a staggering 90 hours to hand paint. The dance routines include 1,104 taps in a tap routine, 116 kicks in show numbers, 52 dance lifts, 48 pairs of false eyelashes used throughout the season.
