Ipswich’s BIG Sing choir will be performing a number of Christmas songs this week to help spread festive cheer.

The group’s concert will take place at Ipswich School on December 19 from 7pm.

Money raised from the concert will go towards BIG Sing’s new charity, The BIG Sing SOUL which takes singing tutors to schools, disabled groups and hospital choirs.

Founder of The BIG Sing, Gemma Francis, said: “We are so excited about our Christmas shows.

“The aim of The BIG Sing is to bring joy to the world and we have plenty of uplifting songs to help get you in the Christmas spirit.

“Many people say that Christmas isn’t Christmas without The BIG Sing and they are right. Come and see the power of community spirit and what we can achieve when we work together.”

Tickets for the concert cost £8 for adults and £6 for concessions and can be bought at
