An internationally acclaimed children’s choir is heading back to Blyth as it continues to build up links and promote its work.

The Pearl of Africa Children’s Choir will bring their culture and heritage to life through their traditional music.

They will be at the St Cuthbert’s Church Hall, Bridge Street, Blyth, at 7pm on Saturday, September 12.

As part of their north east tour, this energetic and enthusiastic group of young people will aim to wow the audience with their mix of traditional African music, dance and drumming.

A spokesman for the choir said it would be a good night for all who attend.

They said: “It will be an evocative mix of traditional Ugandan song and dance, with high octane music, dance and drumming containing infectious rhythms, enthusiastic vocals and dynamic dramatisation is guaranteed to leave the audience enthralled.”

The children are ambassadors for hundreds of similar children back home in Uganda.

They visit the UK to raise awareness and desperately needed funds to help sustain and improve the standard of education, healthcare and living standards in their own schools.

Tickets are just £5 from St Cuthbert’s Church or reserve them by phoning or texting 07340 123827.

All proceeds will go to the choir to support their fundraising.
