THE FAMOUS HEMSBY WEEKENDER IS A TIME FOR ROCKABILLY FANS TO GATHER EN MASSE. SLICK BACK YOUR HAIR, FIRE UP THE CHEVY AND GET READY TO RUMBLE – WE’RE GOING IN!
English rockabilly stars the Infernos get the room jumpin’ on Saturday night
Hemsby’s main drag is lined with neon-lit arcades
Bobby Brooks Hamilton, son of the legendary Jackie Wilson

The seaside town of Hemsby, tucked away in a sleepy corner of Norfolk, is itself a relic of a bygone era, evoking memories of the halcyon days before budget airlines opened up the world’s boundaries to the everyman. The main drag is lined with neon-lit arcades, ice-cream parlours serving sundaes and diners decked out with formica booths.

All in all, the place gives off an innocent air of faded coastal glamour – but twice a year, this quaint facade is given a major shake-up. The engines roar, the jukeboxes fire up, and a quiet parish is transformed overnight into a scene straight out of Grease thanks to a dedicated, glitzy parade of ’50s fanatics strolling the main drag, busy immersing themselves in three days and nights of high-octane rock’n’roll.
