Two more big names in music have today announced they will be stopping off to perform shows in the fine city next year.

March 2017 is set to be a big month for music in Norwich, with many popular acts heading to The Nick Rayns LCR at the University of East Anglia (UEA) to perform for hundreds of their fans.

Already confirmed for the month is British rock group Lower Than Atlantis, who will be taking to the LCR stage on Thursday, March 9 and American pop-punk band All Time Low who'll be playing in Norwich on March 30.

X Factor winner James Arthur and local alternative rock band Mallory Knox will also be joining this exciting line-up, UEA has just revealed.

James Arthur was crowned X Factor champion back in December 2012 and his debut single, Impossible, stormed the charts, quickly becoming the biggest X Factor winner's song of all time, achieving more than three million downloads.
