Next Sunday 30 September, Shoreditch's Big Mix Festival will take place at some of East London's favourite hotspots such as Rich Mix, Concrete and The Brickhouse - with a whole host of respected comedians, musicians, film makers and cabaret acts taking to the stage.

The exciting line-up will run for 10 hours at different venues, with every penny earned from ticket sales going to Macmillan Cancer Support. Marvellous!

To help you decide where you need to be, we've summarised the line up below:

Music
What London show would be complete without the one and only Chas Hodges? Chas will perform with his band, showcasing much-loved Chas & Dave songs, while Parisian synth-pop duo The Penelopes provide the perfect alternative to the cockney show.

Get Cape. Wear Cape, Fly, Sam Duckworth and Josh Kumra join the bill for the music part of the festival, with folk songstress Alessi Laurent-Marke of Alessi’s Ark and the soulful singer Marques Toliver showing us what goodness they can supply.

Comedy
The Big Mix’s comedy offering includes a well known Mystery Headline Act of TV fame, supported by Roisin Conaty, who won Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010.
Roisin will be joined by Tom Deacon of the The Rob Brydon Show amongst other acts, with new act, Paul McCaffrey, also taking to the stage after his recent stint on Russell Howard's Good News.

Film
Movie-fans can spend 90 minutes watching an eight-film journey by the producers of London's original short film evening, Short and Sweet. The experience promises to leave audiences inspired and awestruck, stating that "taboos will be tested, perceptions rattled and senses explored".

Cabaret
Love dance? Then stay tuned for sessions of burlesque, cabaret and circus acts who will take to the stage for "weird and wonderful performances".

Advance tickets are now on sale for just £15 at www.thebigmix.co.uk.
