The Norfolk and Waveney cancer charity Big C is known for creating out-of-the-box fundraisers, from inspiring others to hold Big Cuppas with family and friends, to skydiving out of planes through initiative The Big Jump.

But for its 35th anniversary the charity is turning the fun up a notch. On November 11, the organisation is holding its first Big C charity gig at the Octagon in Norwich, complete with performances from three local bands.

The Norfolk group Hard Rain Band, a six-piece, acoustic-led rock and roll cover band, is headlining the event. The Tin Heart Troubadours, a three-person band, and the Himazas, a duo from Norwich that the play the ukelele, will also rock the night away by playing their own sets.

'There's always something for everyone at a Hard Rain show and we work hard to make our audiences feel part of the experience and always want to come back for more,' Chris Porter, the band's drummer, said.

Organisers of the event are looking forward to the combination of listening to talented local musicians and raising money for a good cause come together.
