Music and business don’t always make a great match, but when you’re doing something for the love of music, a good thing will always prevail. The Norwich Business School and Dragon Hall have come up with a novel idea to allow local buskers, street musicians and student-musicians an opportunity to perform for an audience in a concert setting. The event is titled ‘Hidden Talent’ and takes place on 16th July, from 5pm – 11pm. The objective of the event is to allow a more vulnerable and often ignored section of society to achieve a sense of self worth and satisfaction through performing arts. The acts making the bill are Lee Vann, Ain't Misbehavin, Orion, Soldjasoulz, Alex Sheppard, Ron Davidson and Girl in a Thunderbolt. ‘Hidden Talent’ will be produced by students of the Norwich Business School MBA program as part of their curriculum. Tickets are £9, with proceeds going to Dragon Hall’s charity trust, and are available from UEA Box Office, Soundclash and Beatniks Record Shops.


The Tour of Britain cycle race is returning to Norfolk this September. Last year, the Norfolk stage was confirmed as the best supported of the Tour, drawing an estimated 130,000 people to the roadside. Norfolk and Suffolk county councils have joined forces to bring the Tour back for 2011 - this year on Saturday 17 September. It will travel through the two counties before finishing in London the following day. The crowds will see 100 of the world's leading cyclists compete for the yellow jersey - with former Tour riders including Olympic, world and Commonwealth champions. It’s not a pursuit for sportsmen alone though – you can join 2,000 other cyclists when they ride the Norfolk and Suffolk leg of the Tour on Sunday 24 July. The Prostate Cancer Charity Tour Ride will be the first of four mass participation Tour Rides on the route.

“Just get on with life and try to be happy. Sounds so simple doesn’t it?” It is taking the simplest of life’s paths that seems to evade comic, Zoe Lyons. A current TV favourite and Edinburgh local, Zoe Lyons brings her new show, ‘Clownbusting’ to Norwich Arts Centre on 14th July. It’s a message of idiosyncrasies, that “Life is too short, particularly if you’re a butterfly in the wrong place at the wrong time and Zoe is holding a commemorative piece of cutlery from a trip abroad.” From laughs, to the lament of a lush, albeit a talented one; Bryony Kimmings is NOT an alcoholic… BUT admittedly she has always had a rocky relationship with booze. 7 Day Drunk is a one women show created entirely in states of intoxication during a 7 day experiment in collaboration with a team of scientists and a documentary filmmaker. 7 Day Drunk cracks open Bryony's own creative psyche to beg the question, is alcohol really linked to creativity? The show also features Jamie Moakes and also comes to the NAC on 20th July.
