Concerts in aid of the Big C will be singing out across Norfolk throughout November and December, to celebrate the charity's 35th anniversary.

The voices and musicality of more than 35 choirs and musicians will be raising roofs across Norfolk, to celebrate the birthday of Norfolk and Waveney's cancer charity.

Clive Evans, director of income generation and communications, said: 'Music is uplifting and good for the soul, a great therapy and stress buster and in the run up to Christmas we thought what nicer and more festive way to end our year than by joining in Big C's Christmas Carols.

'We have been amazed and so humbled by the generosity of our choirs and musicians who have offered to help us, either by giving proceeds of ticket sales, or a bucket collection to help us support cancer patients and their families in this area.'

The festivities will be kicked off on Saturday, November 19, when Simply Sing community choir will be performing in Kings Lynn. From there on, there will be six weeks of Christmas concerts, musical entertainment events and open air performances across Norfolk and Suffolk.

Performances include the Norwich High School for Girls Junior Choir, Ellingham and Great Dunham schools, Wymondham College, and the children's ILUVUKE band, as well as staff from the Institute of Food Research, Wymondham's D'Capo, the Keswick Hall Choir, Big Heart and Soul Choir from Castle Acre and the Fakenham Town Band.
