AN OUTDOOR evening concert in Littlebeck is aimed at raising funds for Candlelighters, a children’s cancer charity based in Leeds.

The event is at The Old Mill in Littlebeck when Redcar Operatic Society will sing a selection of songs from London’s West End musicals.

Organiser Julia Weeks said: “People can bring picnics, drinks and something to sit on and when they arrive they will be welcomed with a complimentary glass of champagne.

“Dress should be smart casual.”

Tickets are £10 and there is no charge for children but they must be accompanied by an adult. The event on 11 June opens at 6pm.

Parking is available at The Old Mill or at Littlebeck village hall.

The proceeds from the fund-raiser are being split between Redcar Operatic Society and Candlelighters.
