The Orange Tree in Loughborough is the venue for the East Midlands Children in Need Rocks event on Friday 18th November.

Hosted by BBC Radio’s Dean Jackson, it will feature live performances from some of the best emerging talent in the UK.

Acts lined up for the event include Leicester artistes By The Rivers, fresh for their tour supporting The Specials, charismatic rising star Martin Luke Brown and singer songwriter Izzy Marie Hall, as well as Nottingham band Atticus Anthem and Derby-based guitar band Rugosa Nevada.

There will be live coverage on BBC Radio Nottingham, Derby and Leicester as part of the Children in Need fundraising extravaganza.

“This is a cracking line-up, as all artists have played on BBC Introducing stages at high profile festivals over last summer and are regarded as being some of the UK’s best emerging talents,” said The Orange Tree’s Suzi Corker. “We’d love to raise as much money as possible for this very deserving cause.”

The event kicks off at The Orange Tree in Bedford Square at 8pm. Entry is free, but a donation of £2 is suggested to help raise as much as possible for the annual Children in Need event, organised by the BBC charity that makes a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
