Musicians will muster in Norwich city centre to raise money for victims of the Australian bushfires.
Maria Elayna, from Thorpe St Andrew, and at least 10 other musicians are putting on the charity busking session at Haymarket on Sunday, January 19, from 10.30am.
Miss Elayna, 27, said the performance would be similar to one November, held in memory of A47 crash victim Bradley Smith, which raised more than £530.
She said: "It's awful how many trees have burned down and how the residents and animals have been affected.
"We want to do whatever we can and I'm sure the charities that are helping appreciate every little bit."

It is estimated that more than one billion animals have died in the fires. Twenty-nine people have died and more than 2,200 homes have been lost.
Miss Elayna said the event was open to any musician who wanted to take part, and they could get in touch with her via her Facebook page.
