Due to the Coronavirus outbreak Openwide Coastal Ltd. have taken the decision to reschedule all planned performances and events up to and including Friday 19th June. Therefore this unfortunately means that the Vintage Sixties Festival will be postponed until 2021.
Cromer Pier, a unique venue, the jewel in the crown of the North Norfolk coast and home to the only award winning full season end of pier show in the world is adding to its existing eclectic mix of entertainment with the return of our annual festival celebrating the sixties and the resurgence of interest in all things vintage. This year we are excited to announce that the event is being extended to both weekend days. The festival has real credibility and is an opportunity for enthusiasts of the era to congregate, demonstrate and reignite their passion for the era that brought us The Beatles, Twiggy, Pirate Radio, The Mini and so much more.
Throughout the weekend embrace all things sixties on the pier, promenade and beyond. The arrival of hundreds of scooters, classic motorbikes and vehicles on the promenade is certain to set pulses racing, an opportunity to take a look at collectors pride and joy to create a real air of nostalgia to the day.
60s legend Marty Wilde MBE kicks off the festivities of the era on Thursday 26th March, a chance to see live on stage one of the only performing Rock’n’Roll Pioneers in the World today.
We also have Cromer Soul vintage vinyl DJ’s Piers “Hitman Hawkins” and Trevor Half Nelson spin the discs on Friday 27th March! Enjoy the music from the era as it was intended to be heard on authentic vinyl! From Mod to Motown, Soul to Ska, a veritable A-Z of monster tunes from popular music’s finest decade.
Saturday sees the return of All Or Nothing The Experience! Back after phenomenal demand in 2019 with a brand new version of the West End show celebrating the music of The Small Faces & the era of the MOD’s.
Finish the incredible weekend in the company of The Trems (all former members of The Tremaloes) and The Fortunes double bill. For one night only, two of the biggest named bands to emerge from the 60s bring you a two hour 60s spectacular of pure nostalgia.
For those wanting to get involved whether you are a business, individual or group we would be delighted to hear from you. Applications to take part should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information will be released soon so please do sign up to the newsletter and follow us on social media @thecromerpier.
Openwide Coastal is excited to develop this event into an authentic annual weekend event to become a firm fixture in Cromer’s diverse entertainment calendar showcasing the pier as a unique and desirable location for festival events!
