Things are hotting up in Watton as the town gets ready for it's own “Glastonbury” on Sunday. Eight bands are now scheduled to play at the Queen's Hall in the town as part of March Music Madness a charity fundraiser for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The event is being organised by local women Karen Cross and Tina Kidell who have both experienced excellent care and support from the hospital in the past. The event was initially Karen's idea as her son received specialist care for a life threatening stomach problem. Her friend Tina was happy to help out as she also received care from the hospital during her childhood with weekly visits to help with her severe eczema and asthma.

The line up for the event includes some of Norfolk's well known and up and coming bands including Skafish, Mallard, Harley Street, Loucaine, Spazmodic Moose, Mid Life crisis, Fracture and the Union Jacks. Dereham-based Union Jacks are the youngest band in the line up with an average age of 15 but in spite of that they have already recorded at Leeder's Farm and are due to go on Tour to Barcelona in the autumn.

March Music Madness takes place at the Queen's Hall on Sunday from 5-11.30pm. Tickets cost £10 and are available from Adcock's and Tan over Tan.
