This is the third major charity fundraiser event held by Church of Christ the King.

Last Easter the church raised £5,000 for the Martlets Hospice at a Good Friday event and in 2010 it held a concert to raise funds for emergency relief in Haiti.

Tickets for tonight’s concert at the 700-seater Clarendon Centre in New England Street have already sold out.
