AN AFTERNOON of summer song is in store this Sunday, July 16, at one of Newton Abbot's many parks.

From 2.30pm, Choir 86 will be performing a collection of songs at Forde Park.

Dubbed 'Midsummer Medley Madness in the Park', the event is an afternoon of song and dance, and is in aid of the Forde Park Community Project, which, among other things, have transformed the pavilion at Forde Park into a thriving café.

There will be renditions of classics from The Beatles, as well as from several Andrew Lloyd Webber productions and other productions such as Les Miserable.

Newton Abbot Town Council recently supported the project with a community grant of £1000.

People are encouraged to bring a deckchair or rug, stay as long as one would like and enjoy the music.
