Lunchtime concert

The next edition of the lunchtime concerts at the Hotel Metropole on the West Cliff takes place this Tuesday (7 August).

Stuart Mindenhall will take the stage with his violin to showcase a selection of classics and light music, supported by Frank James at the piano.

The popular lunchtime series will then continue on 4 September with soprano Barbara Wade and Hugh Greaves, tenor.

This will be the first time they have appeared at the venue and they will be accompanied by Iain Robertson and Brenda Wade in a programme of varied musical styles.

The final concert of the season will take place on Tuesday 2 October when concert-goers will be treated to the vocal versatility of opera star Paul Hudson in a programme of songs and arias, both classical and humorous.

Frank James will accompany.

All concerts run from noon to 1.15pm and tickets cost £5 on the door, which includes light refreshments and raffle entry.
