Fresh from its trip to Whitby for the National Street Choirs Festival, Calder Valley Voices has arranged a concert of beautiful, restful and rousing songs from around the World.

The concert takes place in at the Methodist Hall, Hebden Bridge on Thursday July 16, from 7.30pm.

All the proceeds will go to the Women’s Centre in Halifax, which works to improve the quality of life for women both locally and nationally.

The programme includes old and contemporary songs from Britain, Iceland, Palestine and many other parts of the world, with the choir led by director, Carol Donaldson.

The concert is open to the public and tickets (£6 standard, £4 concessions, children free) will be sold on the door at 7.30pm, with cake and hot drinks available at the interval.

Committee member, Paul Forrest said: “Calder Valley Voices always welcomes new members, so check us out at the concert and then join up in the new year if you’re interested – open to all, no auditions.”

The first session of the new term will be at 7.15pm on Thursday September 10 at the Methodist Hall (opposite the Co-op Supermarket in Hebden Bridge).
