THREE of Bolton’s most talented groups are to entertain to help save a piece of town history.

Choirs, The Brixi Singers and Ladybridge Singers, have joined forced with Dawson’s Academy and will be hitting the Victoria Hall stage for An Evening of Song and Dance. The event takes place at the Victoria Hall on June 10 and will raise funds towards the historic building’s upkeep.

It will feature “a highly entertaining and cheerful evening of light music and spectacular dance”.

The Methodist mission faces the threat of closure due to the high cost of maintenance. Many amateur dramatic and choral groups use the facility, and they are joining forces to help raise awareness of the venue to save it for future generations. The event starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10, £7 for under 16s, and are available from the Victoria Hall press office on 01204 522569.
