A METAL night organised by a group of students will be rocking and rolling to a new venue because it has proven so popular.

Organisers of WCT Fest, previously known as TechFest, have moved Thursday's gig to the 250-capacity Keystones in Copenhagen Street, Worcester after interest boomed on its Facebook page.

It had been due to take place at Worcester Technology College in Deansway and is now sponsored by Monster Energy drink.

Free cans of the drink will be handed out to the first 50 people through the door.

Bands set to perform include Ashes to Fall, Aurora, Terraform and Our Hollow, Our Home and there will also be raffle of Monster merchandise.

The metal gig has been organised by seven first year music technology students as part of their foundation degree course with money going to Diabetes UK.

Student Frankie Boden, from Lowerwick, said: "The venue at Keystones has a capacity of 250 which is more than double the capacity in the college.

"We aim to make more money from the ticket sales that will go straight to our chosen charity.

"We have also teamed up with TNT night at Velvet and will be giving a discounted entry to the nightclub after our event."

Doors open at 6pm and tickets, costing £3, are available on the door.
