THEY have performed in many of Europe’s great locations, including majestic cathedrals and fine concert venues.

In June, they are to appear at Newcastle’s City Hall with celebrity guest Lesley Garrett CBE.

And later this month, the renowned Lemington Male Voice Choir will be visiting Acklington for a special concert at St John the Divine Church.

The group’s up-coming performance is seen as something as a coup for the village.

Looking ahead to what should be an evening to remember, villager John Davison said: “As far as I am aware, this is the very first time a male voice choir will have performed in our church and so we are all very much looking forward to it.

“We are particularly delighted that the Lemington Male Voice Choir has agreed to come.

“The choir has an excellent reputation and the sound and harmonies generated should be very special. This is definitely a performance not to be missed.”

Tickets, priced at £7, include entry to the two-hour concert and also admission to Acklington Village Hall afterwards for refreshments.

There will be a prize raffle draw on the evening and visitors will be made most welcome.
