A special music night will help to raise funds for the Priscilla Bacon Hospice appeal and the Norwich hospital's neonatal intensive care unit.

The lead singer of one of the UK's biggest indie bands is coming to Norwich for an intimate acoustic performance that will raise money for both the appeal and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Mark Morriss, lead singer of The Bluetones, will headline an evening of 90s Britpop, indie and dance at Open Norwich, in Bank Plain on Friday, February 21.

The frontman will play a acoustic set made up of his solo songs and classics from the band, which has a string of top 10 albums and singles to their name, including Slight Return, If, Marblehead Johnson and more.

He will be supported by critically-acclaimed Norwich singer/songwriter Lisa Redford and the night will also include sets by DJs from the Common People 90s night, a 90s music memorabilia raffle, giveaways and much more.
