Two musicians will be performing 12 gigs in one night to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

On December 16, singer-songwriter James Erskin and Paul Richards (percussion) will be playing 12 gigs in 12 Cambridge venues to raise money for the charity.

“We will be literally running from one venue to another, charity buckets in hand,” said Paul.

The duo will be playing a 25-minute set of popular songs, including a few Christmas numbers, at each venue.

The 12 gigs of Christmas aims to make as much money as possible for Macmillan; the initial idea was to play a charity gig but then we thought...well, why not play 12 in one day,” added Paul.
