The concert is being held in Shrewsbury Abbey on Saturday, 3rd December, at 6pm, to raise funds for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund which supports cancer patients and raises awareness about cancer throughout Shropshire and Mid Wales.

Lizzy Coleman, Events and Fundraising Officer for Lingen Davies, said the concert would be a fitting way to mark the festive season with a selection of Christmas music performed by some outstanding musicians.

“We have a jam-packed Christmas schedule this year including Abbeyfest, a speciality gin and beer festival at Shrewsbury Abbey, on Friday and Saturday, 18thand 19th November, as well as a Quiz Night at The Buttermarket hosted by local Pantomime Dame Brad Fitt on Wednesday, 23rd November.

“The Carol Concert will be an excellent way to ease yourself into the festive season, listening to some beautiful music and of course, enjoying mince pies and mulled wine,” she added.

Michael Jenkins, Head of Music at Moreton Hall School, will be the compere for the evening, overseeing proceedings and introducing performers. There will also be a Christmas reading from Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Ashley Fraser.

Tickets for the Concert are priced at £15 for adults, £8 for under 12s and under 5s go free.  To book tickets and for further details on the charity’s other events in the lead up to Christmas, visit their new website www.lingendavies.co.uk/events
