Fire-breathing, magic and an internet singing sensation are on the menu at a new fundraising night for a Great Yarmouth charity.

Centre 81 operates a skills and activities centre for people with physical and other disabilities as well as fleet of community transport minibuses.

It is holding the event at the Grosvenor Casino, combining a meal, entertainment and chance to have a flutter at the gaming tables.

It will raise awareness and funds for the centre’s work and appeal to move to a new site next to its current Tar Works Road base.

Stilt-walker Lexie Blake will show off her fire-breathing skills during the evening, in a display also featuring two classic Cadillac cars in the casino garden. She will be joined by fellow dancer Mercedes for a James Bond themed routine during the dessert course.

Vocalist Neil Francis will take the stage to sing classic hits from across the decades. Neil found global fame when video of him singing A Little Respect to crowds on a London underground station after an Erasure concert went viral on social media.

Magician Edd Crafer will do close-up tricks to amaze guests, before the three course meal on Friday, April 22 at the venue on Marine Parade.
