An eclectic mix of music, performance, literature and live art is in store for audiences at the Norwich Arts Centre this spring.
The St Benedicts Street venue's latest brochure reveals a packed programme of events for May and June.
'We're excited to be bringing some incredibly dynamic musicians and artists to Norwich,' said Kelly Robb, marketing and press manager for the Norwich Arts Centre.
'From Congolese hip hop with Mbongwana Star to expansive soundscapes from Mercury Rev to intimate multi-media performances from cutting-edge live artists, it's going to be a busy few months and we can't wait.'
Other music acts in the programme include the New England post-folk music of Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards (May 10), an acoustic evening with songsmith and broadcaster Tom Robinson (May 11), and Neil Young tribute band Don't Spook The Horse (June 17).
