There is another evening of musical delights in store at St Annes’ Ashton Pavilion taking place tomorrow.

The venue in Ashton Gardens is already home to St Annes Folk Club and continues to host a wide range of other musical events.

Tomorrow’s eclectic bill of local performers is being presented by the Blackpool-based Swallowdale Children’s Trust charity and the Friends of St Annes Arts to showcase how new quality sound equipment funded by community awards backed by The Gazette has helped talented young people enhance their performances by taking them to a wider audience.

The concert will begin with a performance by St Annes-based visually impaired singer James Butcher.

He will be followed on to the stage by students Hannah Nuttall and David Bryce, contemporary folk and pop act April Keen and Myles and singer-songwriter Phoebe Green, a student at Arnold King Edward and Queen Mary School.

Nick Evans is a local singer songwriter who specialises in contemporary funk and soul/pop is also on the bill.

The music starts at 7.30pm, with no admission charge but contributions to the charity appreciated.

Swallowdale Children’s Trust offers grants to under 25s in the area, to support day-to-day living as well as support with hobbies such as music or school trips.
