In 2019, German film director Jens Meurer spent several months in the town of Cromer, just off the Norfolk coast.  He followed people as they got ready for two events – Brexit and the annual end of pier variety show a burlesque mix of song and dance, stand-up comedy, and slapstick.

A person stood in front of a stage over-seeing acts.

The result, a documentary, Seaside Special, acts as a time capsule into a world before lockdowns, when everything was on the brink of change, but traditions were being honoured and kept alive on stage.

This is one of Britain’s remaining end-of-the-pier variety shows and Director Meurer described the show as ‘not about becoming super-famous, but it was about entertaining the 500 people who were in that amazing Victorian Theatre twice a day’. Seaside Special premiered at the Cambridge Film Festival described as ‘delightful, thought-provoking, charming, and utterly heartwarming’.

    As part of a comic stage performance, men strike metal cooking utensils attached to their crotches with wooden spoons hanging between their legs.
