Howden Minster was filled with the beautiful voices of the visiting Weighton Waytes choir who entertained with a wide variety of hits.

Weighton Waytes is a well-established, mixed voice, community choir based in the East Riding town of Market Weighton, which is situated at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds.

They will be performing at Norham Church on Saturday.

The choir is returning with some of its own accompanying musicians to perform what will be a lively mixture of secular and sacred music.

The Rev Rob Kelsey, Vicar of Norham, said: “The Weighton Waytes first came to Norham Church last year, when its mixture of enthusiastic singing and good-humoured banter were very well received. 

“In fact, both the audience and the performers enjoyed the concert so much that, even as members were leaving, the audience was asking for a return booking, and the Weighton Waytes were saying that they’d like to come again.”

Tickets are £5, available on the door, under 16s free.
