Music, drama and a special live screening will be showcased at Lowestoft’s Marina Theatre in a busy week ahead.

The entertainment starts on Sunday, with a stunning treat for fans of 1960s music as Halfway To Paradise: The Billy Fury Story is re-told.

To mark what would have been Billy Fury’s 75th birthday, and 32 years after his death, his own band – the original Fury’s Tornados, remember fondly their precious times with him as they replay live his timeless hits. The atmosphere will be both electric and emotional, with Colin Gold – as Fury – sensational. The show starts at 7.30pm, seats £21.50.

For three performances on Monday and Tuesday next week, Sherlock Holmes and The Ripper Murders will be staged. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are drawn into one of the darkest plots ever in this new and terrifying case. It is performed on Monday at 7.30pm and Tuesday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Seats cost £19.50, concessions £17.50.

Next Thursday, at 7pm, and screened live via satellite from The Barbican in London, National Theatre Live will showcase Hamlet – starring Benedict Cumberbatch – at the Marina. Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy in this eagerly-awaited production. Tickets cost £15 adults and concessions/Theatre Friends £12.50.
