REHEARSALS are underway for a Christmas concert next month.

Ribble Valley Choir and Orchestra will be performing the show, Joy to the World 2018, at Clitheroe's Trinity Church and Community Hub in December.

It will include carols for the audience to sing and live performances of poems and orchestra.

Steuart Kellington, musical director of Ribble Valley Choir said: “This will be the eighth concert in the Joy to the World series which has proved very popular as a town event.

"My own celebration of Christmas starts with this concert and I obtain great satisfaction and pleasure from conducting the choir and orchestra."

The Ribble Valley Mayor Stuart Carefoot will be attending.

It will be held at the Parson Lane church on December 9 from 6.30pm.
