An enthusiastic audience packed out Pocklington’s All Saints’ Church for a special concert to raise money for church funds.
The first half of the programme featured a series of accomplished performances, including a delightful flute trio and an inspiring solo from Pocklington’s very own concert pianist, Helen Drewery.
Variety was key, so interspersed with more serious pieces was a rendition of Flanders and Swan’s ‘The Sloth’ by Sue Woodcock.
The second half of the evening was devoted to a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta - ‘Trial by Jury’ – performed by the Celebration Singers, a whirlwind tale of a spurned bride to be, an unrepentant suitor and court room skulduggery.
