The Solent Male Voice Choir is holding a joint charity concert with Barnstaple Male Voice Choir from Devon on Sunday.

At 4pm at St Nicholas’s Church, North End, Portsmouth, the two choirs will combine. The Solent Male Voice Choir was formed in 1961 in Portsmouth by a group of postmen who enjoyed singing while sorting the mail.

It celebrated its golden anniversary in 2011 and the choir now has more than 30 members. Go to for more information.
