Light House cinema staff were excited to welcome the choir on Sunday afternoon, and visitors were delighted by a number of songs before sitting down to a screening of the film Military Wives, starring Kristen Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan.

The choir showing was free to attend and was followed by a screening of film at 3pm.

The film charts the story of a group of women who founded a community choir while their husbands were serving in Afghanistan.

The original choir went on to become an international sensation, performing at events around the country and leading to the creation of military wives choirs around the world, aiming to bring women of the military community closer together through singing.

Light House CEO Kelly Jeffs said: "We were honoured to welcome the Cosford Military Wives choir to our beautiful venue to celebrate their hard work and to mark the new film, which is currently screening here at Light House.
