The concert is to be staged at the Red House in Albrighton in support of the Friends of Albrighton Swimming Pool Lottery.

It will include a blend of classical music, opera, show tunes and classic pop music.

The charity raises funds to support the running costs and maintenance of the local outdoor swimming pool located at Albrighton Primary School.

It works in partnership with the school and Albrighton District Swimming Club to ensure that children and adults from the local community have a place to swim.

It has been supporting the pool for more than five years and the concert will make a return after a three year absence.

Money raised will provide much-needed funds to help with the rising costs of energy required to operate the pool.

David Brady, chairman of the Friends of Albrighton Swimming Pool Lottery, said: "The concert will feature national opera singers, a renowned concert pianist and Albrighton's Village Vocals.

"Damian Carter has performed with the English National Opera and Stella Woodman-Jarvis is with the Welsh National Opera.

"Michelle Brigginshaw has worked with artists such as Kiri Te Kanawa and the Village Vocals are a local troupe which supports charities through concert work.

"Tickets cost £10 and there will also be a raffle and the opportunity for people to join the lottery which provides funding for this village resource."
