A Norfolk cancer charity hopes up to 2000 people will be getting in to the rhythm as they take part in a two-hour zumbathon in the grounds of a stately home on Sunday.
The event at Houghton Hall, near Fakenham, is the biggest Big C has ever organised and is raising money to pay for therapies, counselling, support groups, nurses and all-important cups of tea across the county.
Big C's community fund-raiser Rachel Francis connected with zumba instructor mr dod on Facebook and the idea was born,
Gates open at 1.30pm and there will be Samba band to welcome everyone.
The dancing starts at 3pm and Zumba Becks and Sarah Taylor will join mr dod lead people through the moves.

It costs £6.50 to take part if you book in advance or £10 on the day. Spectators are welcome and there is a suggested donation of £5 (£3 children).

mr dod said: 'We visited the research labs at the UEA where some of Big C's money goes. It was great to hear the Big C-funded scientist talk and see where the money goes. That's why we need more money raised for our event.'
