Hollywood star Idris Elba is coming to Norwich for a special event.

The 45-year-old, best known for his roles in Luther, Thor and The Jungle Book, will play a DJ set at Mantra Club and Lounge on Saturday, July 28.

As well as being a talented actor, Elba has also had an illustrious career as a musician and DJ, producing music and releasing his own songs, often operating under the name Big Driis.

A spokesman for Mantra said: “Idris Elba is far from your average actor turned musician, having begun his career as a DJ long before finding fame on the big screen.

“Whether spinning surprise sets in small east-London bars or thrilling thousands in the world’s top clubs, Idris’ credibility as a DJ and a selector is without question.”

They added: “His name speaks for itself and we are truly proud to announce the launch of Idris Elba’s DJ set at Mantra. Join us for the biggest night of 2018 in Norwich as doors open at 9pm and hopefully it will be a night none of you will ever forget.”

Tickets for Idris Elba’s DJ set cost £20 per person, with a limited number available via
