The lead singer of one of the UK’s biggest indie bands is coming to Norwich for an intimate acoustic performance that will raise money for superb Norwich causes.
The team behind East Anglia’s biggest and best 90s night are delighted to bring you news of their next exciting event. Mark Morris, lead singer of The Bluetones, will headline a special 90s music charity night. Morris will headline an evening of 90s Britpop, indie and dance that will raise funds for the Priscilla Bacon Hospice Appeal and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The frontman will play a acoustic set made up of his solo songs and classics from the band, which has a string of top 10 albums and singles to their name, including Slight Return, If, Marblehead Johnson and more. He will be supported by critically-acclaimed Norwich singer/songwriter Lisa Redford. The night will also include DJ sets from Common People DJs, a 90s music memorabilia raffle, giveaways and much more. All proceeds from the event will go to the two charities and to hosts Open Youth Trust, which works with the county’s youngsters. The Priscilla Bacon Hospice Appeal aims to raise £12.5m to build a much-needed new hospice in Norwich. The new 24-bed facility will transform end-of-life care for those terminally ill in Norfolk and Waveney. NICU is a specialist unit which cares for more than 800 sick babies in Norfolk every single year. It has literally saved the lives of hundreds of babies and any money donated will help extend the fantastic work they do. Over the past two years this twice yearly event has built up a reputation as a not to be missed evening full of surprises. Previous DJs have included Steve Lamacq, Bez, Rick Witter of Shed 7, Dave Rowntree of Blur and Mark Morris from The Bluetones. Details for Common People 7 will be announced soon.
