The evening will follow the annual fete at the church which celebrates its 70th anniversary at Mile Cross this year.

The concert starts at 7pm. Tickets priced at £4 for adults and £2 for children are available from the church, Gordon Barber Funeral Directors and Prelude Records, St Giles Street, Norwich
