A SINGING sensation will be wowing crowds as West End Cabaret - Songs from the Musicals, returns to Cookhill Village Hall.

Sarah Lark, who was a finalist in the BBC’s “I’d Do Anything” talent show and is now staring in Les Miserables in the West End, will be performing in the show in Cookhill on Sunday, October 7.
