The evening ends with classics from Gilbert and Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore.

The junior choir will add songs of their own and Music Director John Forsyth “will ensure a performance full of energy and more than a touch of humour”.

A choir spokesperson added: “The church is a beautiful building with comfortable seating and a good acoustic. It is fully accessible and there is plenty of parking in nearby quiet streets.”

Tickets are £12 for adults and £5 for children or students with the price including a glass of wine or juice.
