The evening, which has been dubbed IndigoFest, will showcase a fantastic line-up.

The acts include: chart topper Tony Burrows (Edison Lighthouse, Love Grows), ’80s new wave band Blue Zoo, platinum-selling hit-maker David Martin (songwriter for Elvis Presley and Dusty Springfield) and local acts including AC/DC tribute band Bad Boy Boogie, singer-songwriter Josie Quin, The Collector, NooN, Angel Delights, Marizia, and singer Lucy Bradley.

The evening will raise funds for The Nkuringo Foundation Music School in Uganda, a charity set up to create self-esteem through music.

The charity also runs other projects in Uganda, including community projects installing water tanks, ‘light to read’ solar energy projects, child sponsorships and health projects funding medical students and developing a health clinic.

A special song has been composed for the event, featuring pupils from the Nkuringo Foundation Music School and the UK Pop Skool Choir.

The UK choir will perform the song on the night, accompanied by a specially commissioned video filmed in Uganda, featuring the Nkuringo choir.

IndigoFest is sponsored by West Sussex firm Indigo Tax and Accountancy Ltd.
