The event takes place at St Peter's Church on Monday evening at 7.30pm and a festive selection of seasonal music is promised. Refreshments will be available and there will be a retiring collection.

Band chairman Caryl Billingham said: "The programme will be an entertaining mix of traditional, seasonal and unexpected with an opportunity to join in at some point.

"Being our first 'proper' concert since the periods of lockdown last year we are very excited to be performing and we are sincerely hoping that we will still be able to do so despite the recent tightening of the Government guidelines."
