IRISH dancing and choral and classical music are on the bill of a First World War-themed concert.

Musician Peter Lindsay, from Leigh Park, has been organising the shows for the past seven years in aid of forces charities.

This year’s event will be in memory of his late wife Theresa.

Mr Lindsay, a former soldier, said: ‘It will be on behalf of SSAFA again this year in The New Theatre, Park Community School, Leigh Park.

‘It’s a truly magnificent venue and we have the privilege of being the first organisation to use it.

‘The principal performers for this year’s show are Achoired Taste, a mixed choir from Horndean.

‘They will be ably accompanied by the choir’s principal pianist Rob Gallop.

‘The Boyle-O’Dowda Academy of Irish Dance, and our stalwart pianist Richard Wort, will be on stage and talented 15-year-old classical pianist Clarys Thompson will also perform.’

The show, on Saturday, starts at 7pm. Tickets are £10.
