People are invited to an evening of live music to raise money for Medecins sans Frontieres.

The African Evening takes place at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist's Narthex Centre on Unthank Road in Norwich.

It is being organised by Norfolk couple Beatriz De La Iglesia and Michael Gyapong, who have helped raise more than £13,000 for the charity.

Miss Iglesia said: 'We have an amazing line-up for the evening, including our main act Groupo Lokito, who are coming from down from London.

'They are a very animated Congolese band performing a fusion of Cuban music with their African beats.'
