The Churnet Valley Male Voice Choir welcomes men of any age who might enjoy singing for fun and demands no prior musical knowledge. Now in its 21st year, the choir has given in excess of 200 performances mainly in North Staffordshire and Cheshire but has also appeared in concerts further afield in Bridgnorth, Luton and has even visited Germany.

The choir has also sung at wedding ceremonies as far away as Warrington.

Over the years the choir has developed a reputation for creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and providing a varied and regularly updated repertoire.

Uttoxeter Town Brass Band was reformed as a community band in 1996 in memory of the late Alan Booth, a local peripatetic teacher from this area, with the aim of entertaining, educating and encouraging people in all communities to participate and enjoy music.

Tickets, for the concert on Satudray, are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children. Details: 01538 703135.
