Tickets are on sale for the Mayor’s Charity Christmas Concert featuring Martlesham Brass Band, female harmony group Tutti Frutti and the Felixstowe Academy String Ensemble.

Tutti Frutti’s programme will include Coldplay’s Viva La Vida, Hal David and Burt Bacharach’s Say A Little Prayer and Rollo Dilworth’s Shine on Me, while the Martlesham Brass Band will play pieces such as The Snowman, Merry Christmas Everybody and Mistletoe and Wine.

The event is on December 12 at 7.30pm at St John’s Church – tickets £10 adults, £7.50 child/senior citizens from Felixstowe Town Hall.

The evening will raise money for the Level Two youth project and FACTS.
