Norfolk songsters the Sheringham Shantymen are holding a concert at St Peter's Church in their hometown where they recorded a CD of their favourite songs.

The group celebrated a quarter of a century of performing two years ago, when they performed an anniversary concert at the town's Lighthouse Community Church.

Dick Grieve, the group's secretary, said: 'This concert is for the benefit of the church and is in part a thank you from the Shantymen to the church for allowing us to use it to record our latest CD.'

The group, which was founded by a handful of musicians and singers in 1990, has performed all over the UK, as well as in Ireland, Germany, France and America. Its TV appearances have ranged from Blue Peter to the BBC's Countryfile series.

The concert is at 7.30pm on Saturday, April 29. It's free entry, with a retiring collection for the church.
