AS part of the national centenary commemoration of the end of World War One a special show is coming to the Palace Theatre.

Local choir The Bel Canto Singers have been asked to appear alongside the professional performers from brand new musical, Keep The Home Fires Burning.

The show's creator and director, Alan Bowles said: “We are thrilled that the The Bel Canto Singers are going to be appearing with us. They are an incredibly talented group of singers and we are having a lot of fun working together on some absolutely terrific music.

"As we tour the UK, it is really exciting to be able to offer local singers the chance to join us for this very unique centenary tour, and we hope that people will support them and the incredibly hard work they are putting into learning these beautiful, poignant songs.”

This show will feature more than 30 songs from the era such as It's A Long Way to Tipperary, Pack Up Your Troubles and Oh What A Lovely War, as well as some of the more forgotten melodies of the time including the heartfelt and poignant Bells of St Marys and the title song itself Keep The Home Fires Burning.

It will also feature a live band.

The show is on Thursday, November 1 at Redditch's Palace Theatre.
