A band formed by homeless charity St Martins will be performing alongside a host of local artists.

'The Undies' were formed three years ago at the weekly music sessions held at the centre.

The charity group collaborated with local artists including Little Red Kings and Matt Watson to release the new album, Under 1 Riff.

The album will be launched at a gig at the Norwich Arts Centre on Thursday, July 5.

Learning and programme development manager, Fiona Joyce, said: 'Music is a really effective way to increase self-esteem, confidence and creativity. We see this each week in the sessions. Our members have worked really hard throughout the whole process, from writing their songs, to rehearsals and the studio recordings. It is fantastic to team up with other local talent to release an album.'

Tickets for the event cost £6 in advance and £8 on the door and are available from norwichartscentre.co.uk
