The line-up includes David Kramer, the Marc de Kock big band, Aviva Pelham and Brad Liebl.

If you're at a loose end tonight (Wednesday). why not get down to the Baxter Concert Hall for a one-off charity concert.

Organised by Alex Gabriel, it's a fundraiser for three amazing local children Aaron Lipschitz, Joshua Nel and Arizona Hoy, who have all been diagnosed with serious illnesses.

Aaron has an illness where his immune system can't fight off any infection and is the only child in South Africa with this illness. You'd never know he was ill, he's always got a wonderful smile on his face.

Alex Gabriel, Event organiser

Arizona is fighting stage four Neuroblastoma cancer, but again always smiling. She's going through chemotherapy.

Alex Gabriel, Event organiser

Joshua is 15. He's got brain cancer. These kids are very brave, they're fighting it truth and nail.
