MP Norman Lamb calls on local musicians and live music venues to enter “Rock the House” annual parliamentary competition

An MP is calling on local musicians and live music venues in north Norfolk to enter a competition that could see them perform on the House of Commons terrace.

Norman Lamb, whose son manages the artist Tinchy Stryder, is baking the annual parliamentary 'Rock the House' live music competition.

'If you don't play yourself but know of a talented musician or a great venue that you feel deserves a nomination, I want to hear from you,' he said.

'We have a great deal of talent here in Norfolk, and this competition gives entrants a valuable opportunity to gain wider recognition and the contacts that can be crucial to launching a career.

'It would be great to see Norfolk taking the competition to the rest of the country and showing what we have to offer.'
