A guitar signed by Eric Clapton being auctioned for charity at North Walsham this weekend has now got an added bonus.

A tribute band to the guitar guru heard about local jeweller Barry Holden's local Live Aid gig, which is being boosted by his bumping into Clapton at a local hotel and getting the maestro to autograph the instrument.

Classic Clapton have donated two passes to their April 4 show at the Norwich Maddermarket after being impressed with Mr Holden's efforts.

It will be added to the guitar lot which is also signed by Mike Rutherford from Genesis and Procol Harum singer Gary Brooker.
