Wearing sneakers on a night out can often result in being refused entry to bars, but a quirky charity fundraiser in Norwich is actually encouraging both guys and girls to don sneakers and suits for a special night out.

The Suits and Sneakers event at Tao Club and Lounge, in Prince of Wales Road, on March 9 is the idea of Ben Adams, Rob Sinclair and Rick Liddiment who all live in the city and who run the Hotbox nights twice a month at Tao.

They hope this Hotbox charity night will raise about £1,000 for Bryan Gunn’s Appeal which helps children and young people with leukaemia and other forms of cancer.

Mr Adams, whose family are good friends with Bryan Gunn, said: “With Hotbox we want to offer a different type of night out in Norwich, and the suits and sneakers night is kind of quirky.

“People do not have to wear suits and sneakers, but it would be awesome if they did - including the girls.

“It should be a lot of fun.”

Music on the night will include disco, dance, club classics, 80s and 90s, reggae and hip hop.

People will also have the chance to win prizes, including a pair of Beats By Dre Headphones which have been donated by B.B.Adams.

The event is also being supported by clothes shop Philip Browne which will be hosting a related DJ event in-store on the same evening until 9pm as part of the Norwich Lanes Fashion Night Out.

• The Suits and Sneakers event is from 9.30pm until 3am on Friday, March 9 at Tao.

Tickets cost £5, and for every ticket sold £1 is being donated to Bryan Gunn’s Appeal.

Tickets can be bought on the night. To find out about booking tickets in advance email hotboxnights@gmail.com

• Hotbox also has a night at Tao this Friday when DJ@War is performing. For more information on this and other events see Hotbox’s Facebook page or find Hotbox on Twitter at @HotBoxNights
