Talented performers have teamed up for a special show to raise money for two community organisations.

The Gala Proms, featuring the Rugby Male Voice Choir and Bilton Silver Band, will raise funds for the Friends of St Cross and the Rotary Club of Rugby Dunsmore on October 24 at the Temple Speech Room.

The programme for the evening will feature a Rugby Home Anthems Medley and a Last Night of the Proms item – both of which will be sing-along opportunities for the audience of up to 600 people.

Willy Goldschmidt, vice chairman of the Friends, said: “Unbeknown to us, the Rugby Male Voice Choir and Bilton Silver Band performed together in this venue some 30 years ago and it was in aid of an appeal organised by the Friends of St Cross. We look forward to a fun-filled programme.”

Trevor Wagg, president of the Rugby Dunsmore Rotary Club, said : “We are delighted to join with the Friends to put on this fantastic event. We have been keen to do what we can to support this very worthwhile cause for the benefit of the people of Rugby. We know that both the choir and the band sound superb in their own right but when combined together and joined by visiting choristers in this magnificent venue we are sure to raise the roof.”

Tickets cost £10 and are on sale at the Rugby Visitor Centre and the Tea Bar in the out patients sector at St Cross.
