A band which has performed in prestigious London venues will be playing Christmas music in aid of two North Walsham churches.

The Norwich Citadel Band of the Salvation Army is playing at St Nicholas’ Parish Church in North Walsham on Friday December 5 at 7.30pm.

Proceeds from the concert will go towards the St Nicholas tower repair fund and North Walsham Methodist Church sound system.

The band was formed in 1882 and is still a continuing feature of Salvation Army life in the city of Norwich.

It carries out an extensive programme of civic, church and cultural engagements throughout the year.

The band regularly plays in cathedral and concert venues around the region as well as travelling to Salvation Army centres in Britain.

It has also appeared at the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall and the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and Sandringham House.

Overseas, they have played in the concert hall of the University of Cape Town and the Centennial Memorial Temple in New York City.

Tickets cost £8 for adults, £7 for senior citizens, and £5 for people under 14.

Tickets can be bought by contacting 01692 404126 or St Nicholas Church office or on the door on the night.

Fourteenth century St Nicholas’ Church originally had a 147-ft tower but parts fell down in 1724, with further falls in 1835 and 1836.

Exposure to the weather caused more flints to loosen in 2011 and the area was fenced off.

It is estimated the tower will cost £230,000 to repair.
