Singers from CCADS, Fareham Musical Society, Hayling Musical Society and South Downe Musical Society will all be taking part in the event at the Gaiety Bar tomorrow. 

The groups were chosen as they are ones that Sue has performed with in the past. 

Becky Garnett, one of the organisers for the concert, said: ‘We have a fantastic set list planned for what we hope will be an uplifting celebration of life and love and Sue is performing too.

‘We also have a former member of South Downe Musical Society and CCADS Theatre who has recently been in Les Miserables in the West End, joining us as our special guest - James Hume.’ 

Doors for the concert will open at 7pm tomorrow and the show itself will begin at 7.45pm.
