Rock Choir, the national phenomenon that’s spreading around the country, is in Beccles next week.

“With more than 16,000 members, they rehearse in over 240 towns nationwide and the fabulous group in our area is Lowestoft and Beccles and we are delighted they are making a very welcome return to the Beccles Public Hall on Wednesday at 7.30pm.

“If you weren’t able to attend their first event at Beccles Public Hall last December, here’s your chance to come and see a fantastic spectacle as well as hearing the wonderful sound of their versions of pop, Motown and chart songs. This is our local Rock Choir - it’s Lowestoft and Beccles Rock Choir and they are on their way to Beccles again!” said Sue Bergin, events coordinator at the Hall.

Rock Choir was started by musician Caroline Redman Lusher in 2005.

• The Beccles-based Spotlight Musical Theatre Group is bringing the popular musical Thoroughly Modern Mille to town next month.

This high-spirited, zany 1920’s musical filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, promises to be a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.

The show runs from Tuesday, July 1 until Saturday, July 5, at Beccles Public Hall.
