Bands ‘Mosh Against Cancer’ to raise over �1,300 for charity at Waterfront in Norwich

A packed-out crowd rocked out at Norwich's Waterfront venue to help raise over �1,300 for Cancer Research UK on Saturday night.

The event was called Mosh Against Cancer and saw 250 people packed into the King Street venue's upstairs studio area to enjoy a night of live music.

Local bands Crooked Minds, We Can't Dance, High Hopes and Settle For Second all performed at the event, with Annotations Of An Autopsy filling the headline spot and all the bands playing only cover songs.

The event was organised by Jamie Briggs, Steve Regan, Freddie Wyatt and Ant Lacey, all who know each other through the local music scene, with Steve being the lead singer of Annotations Of An Autopsy.

Miss Briggs, 20 and from Hellesdon, said: 'One of our friend's mum's was recently diagnosed with cancer and unfortunately actually died about a week ago.
