The latest act to join the exciting line up for the Big Charity Concert is Eastbourne choir Concentus.

Under the musical direction of Adrian White the choir has been in existence for 10 years and has a large following.

Concentus has 90 members and performs a range of music from classical to pop. They have appeared at a number of venues including churches, shopping centres, the Bandstand and in May this year at Twickenham Rugby ground for the England v Wales match in front of an 85,000 crowd.

The Big Charity Concert is back for a fourth year to raise funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice. This year’s event has finalists from Britain’s Got Talent and is headed up by local entertainer and comedian Steve Hewlett who will be wowing the audience with his much loved puppets including Arthur Lager. Since Steve’s appearance in the final of BGT he has been in constant demand touring the country on a regular basis.

Steve will be supported by soprano Faryl Smith who has released three successful albums, sung at Cup Finals, made numerous concert appearances and duetted with the world famous tenor Jose Carreras. There is also 14 year old Jasmine Elcock, Classical Reflection, Zyrah Rose, Bourne Chorus, Ocklynge School Choir and Shining Stars Drama Academy.

Tickets £18 and £16 with £2 concessions available at www.royalhippodrome.com. Telephone 01323 802020.
