A POPULAR cafe bar is challenging customers to a 14-hour singing marathon for charity.

Flirt Cafe Bar at the Triangle is hosting the all-day open mic event tomorrow, 9am-11pm, in aid of Dorset Blind Association.

Rob Hazell, co-owner of Flirt, said: “We host an open mic night monthly on a Saturday. Those nights are always popular, including singing, bands, poets, comedians and storytellers. This 14-hour event will be similar but all performers will pay a minimum £1 per song or poem with all proceeds going to the Dorset Blind Association.”

Anyone can just turn up for a performance slot. Call 01202 553999 or email flirt@flirtcafebar.com
