WATTISHAM Military Wives Choir has joined the line-up for this year’s Abbey Fest.

The choir will perform soft rock classics in the historic Abbey gardens, Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday July 22.

The 35-strong choir based at RAF Wattisham, Suffolk were inspired by the Military Wives Choir led by Gareth Malone who had both a Christmas number one and a chart-topping album.

They started practising together in January and have sent recordings to their loved ones serving in Afghanistan.

This year’s Abbey Fest will run from Friday July 20 to Sunday July 22.
