They will be performing a selection of favourites including Cantique de Jean Racine (Faure), Hallelujah Chorus (Handel), Locus Iste (Bruckner), Blest Pair of Sirens (Parry) - and a new composition by their own music director, Nick Austin, written to celebrate their 60th anniversary last year.

The performance will start at 7:30pm.

The group were founded in 1958, and started out as carol-singers raising money for the Save The Children fund.
