Woodfalls Band will be also be appearing at the concert, having just been ranked the 18th best brass band in the world.

Woodfalls bandmaster Paul Williams said: “It would be fantastic to see the church packed out to remember our dear friend and musician Dave Shelley, plus raise lots of funds for a very worthy cause.”

The free concert starts at 7pm. A retiring collection will be made on behalf of the British Heart Foundation.
