Catch the legendary Gerry Marsden in the show, Gerry Cross The Mersey, on Friday night, March 31 in St George’s Theatre, Great Yarmouth.

In the early Sixties, Gerry and the Pacemakers worked the same Liverpool/Hamburg circuit as the Beatles before being signed in 1962 by manager Brian Epstein, as his second group after the Beatles.

The following year, under the direction of producer George Martin, they burst on the scene with three consecutive No 1 hits – How Do You Do It, I Like It and the iconic You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Over the next years, most of the Pacemakers’ hits were written by Gerry, including Ferry Cross the Mersey.

The group disbanded in 1966 but was reformed by Gerry in 1974. They continue to tour.

Gerry Cross The Mersey is a journey with Gerry performing songs from his repertoire interspersed with stories and anecdotes from his time on the road.
