A wide variety of musical entertainment will take place at a concert being staged by a farm shop near South Cave in aid of local causes.

The second annual Harvest Festival Concert at Beverley Minster, organised by Drewton’s Farm Shop, will take place on 10 October. It will include performances by renowned Howden-based Tenor Steven Goulden, Longcroft School’s Gospel Choir, The Salvation Army Band, performers from the East Riding Theatre and Pocklington School’s Music Theatre Society.

The proceeds will be shared between a number of charities, including Beverley Minster, The Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Unit at Castle Hill Hospital and East Riding Theatre.

As well as a cheese and wine supper supplied by Drewton’s there will be a ‘Tree of Life’ raffle with the chance to win prizes.

Katie Taylor, proprietor of Drewton’s, said: “We held our first Harvest Festival Concert at Beverley Minster last year and it was a wonderful evening with some truly awe-inspiring performances. We’re delighted to welcome many of the performers back again this year, but have also added some exciting new acts to the programme for the evening.

“Last year we raised a significant sum for our chosen charities and hope to do the same again this year. Please come along for a fantastic evening of entertainment, food and wine to help us raise money for some really worthwhile causes.”

Tickets, priced at £15 for adults and £10 for 10 to 16-year-olds, are on sale now from Drewton’s or the East Riding Theatre in Beverley.

If anyone would like to donate gifts of food (with a longer shelf life) on the evening, they will be distributed locally by the Salvation Army, in partnership with Churches Together and the Holderness and Wold Food Bank of Driffield.
