Talent contest at church

AN ARRAY of musical performers will take part in a talent competition next month to raise money to restore a church in Bury St Edmunds.

The contest at St Edmunds Roman Catholic Church, in Westgate Street, on Friday November 25 will feature 14 acts from across Suffolk.

There will be music to suit everyone’s taste including opera, West End shows, musicals and classical.

The event is in aid of a restoration fund for the church, which celebrates its 250th anniversary next year.

The show starts at 7pm and the church crypt will be open for refreshments from 6pm. An interval will be held from 8.15 to 8.45pm.

Tickets cost £5 and can be reserved from Gemma Bell on (01359) 233448.
