Cantamus Choir to sing for North Walsham church tower appeal
Vivaldi and jaunty English folk songs will be performed by a community choir in aid of a church repair fund.
The concert by Cantamus Choir will be taking place this Saturday at 7pm in St Nicholas Church on North Walsham Market Place.
Proceeds from the evening will go towards the St Nicholas Church Tower Fund.
An estimated £55,000 is needed to stabalise the structure, which used to be Norfolk's second tallest church tower until its collapse in 1724.
Cantamus recently performed in St Jame's Church, Southrepps, in aid of the fund.
Tickets for this weekend's concert cost £5 on the door.
The performance will include the melodic Gloria by Vivaldi, The Bluebird by Stanford as well as English folk songs.
