ORGANISERS of a festive concert today promised an evening to blow away the cobwebs of winter.

The final preparations are underway in advance of Ipswich Sings Christmas, which will be hosted by Ipswich Choral Society at the Corn Exchange on Saturday.

The musical extravaganza is being staged in aid of the Somebody's Daughter appeal, a registered charity launched by The Evening Star and Ipswich Borough Council in late 2006 to support vulnerable young people.

The concert will feature a mix of traditional carols and music to get the county into the festive spirit.

There will also be a special performance from The Suffolk Deaf Association Signing Choir, who will be using sign language to spread a little Yuletide happiness.
