Local musical talent is set to take over Bressingham Steam Museum for an event that raises thousands for children's charities.

Bressingham Band Night has become an established annual event attracting some of the region's best musical performers who perform for free. Last year the event raised £6,206 and organisers are hoping to exceed this when the eighth event takes place on Saturday, October 5.

The four bands playing in 2019 include headliners The Mighty Flux, Little Red Kings, The Desert Sleds and Dr Mothrod. All funds go to Nature and Nurture Therapeutic who help young people who have suffered trauma or who in other ways need help to cope with issues in their lives.

Organiser Lou Hines said: "The bands donate their talent to us, as does the amazing sound engineer JJ Goodwin. Fraser Duffin owner of the Oaksmere donates much of our beer and lagers and we are also supported by The Burston Crown and the Cock Inn, all helping is to raise as much as we possibly can."

Tickets are £15 on the door or £10 in advance via the Facebook page or The Burston Crown. Alternatively call Lou Hines on 07810 005362.
