Review: Norwich music community comes together for 21-year-old singer battling cancer

On Wednesday at Epic Studios, the Norwich music community united in support of singer Billy Clayton.
He needs life saving treatment in his ongoing battle against cancer. So far his mother's Go Fund Me page has raised a staggering £80,000 towards the target of £200,000. A packed crowd at this fundraising event will boost the total a great deal.
Dan Allen from Norwich band Ducking Punches started the night well with an acoustic set, followed by the beautifully voiced singer song writer Bessie Taylor.

Fay Milton, the drummer from the band Savages, then dropped a well-received DJ set before the fantastic Hannah Diamond entertained the large crowd with her brand of electro pop.
Let's Eat Grandma then headlined brilliantly with a chilled out and trippy set, with Fay Milton on drums. All three times I've been lucky enough to see them this year I've been blown away by how good they are.

It was heart-warming to see so many people turn out on a Wednesday night to support such a worthy cause.
Event manager Rick Lennox told me he was amazed, considering he only announced the event three weeks ago. It goes to show the strength of the music scene in this fine city.
