Local choirs are busy rehearsing for Calne’s first spring sing on April 26.

During the event, to run from 11am to 3.30pm, ten different choirs will perform at three different venues, the town hall, the library and Marden House.

Pupils from John Bentley, St Dunstan’s and Cherhill Schools will perform, as well as vocalists from Singchronize, the Lingmara choir and Calne Evangelical Church.

Calne Town Council is organising the event and has formed a staff choir especially for the occasion which has been practising over the last couple of weeks.

Several workshops will run during lunchtime, including singing workshops run by the Calne Choral Society and Calne Baptist Church. For details phone (01249) 814000.
