Chart-topping Military Wives set to perform in Skegness

THE Embassy Theatre in Skegness has announced that it will host a concert for the chart-topping Military Wives later this year.

The hugely popular group, who perform on the Jubilee anthem “Sing”, will play the Embassy Theatre on Saturday, October 13.

The song, which was written by Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber, rocketed to the top of the charts last weekend.

Five members of the Wattisham Military Wives Choir went to Abbey Road Studio in London last month to record the song, which also features a guest turn on the tambourine by Prince Harry.

Theatre Manager Steve Rushforth said: “We are delighted to bring the Military Wives Choir to Skegness – it will be an evening of great entertainment but also a time to remember and celebrate our brave servicemen and women around the country.”

“Don’t miss the exclusive opportunity to see these truly inspiring ladies perform at The Embassy Theatre on Saturday, October 13 for their first UK theatre show.

“They will be joined by further guests and will perform the current number one hit “Sing” live!”

The 35-strong choir was set up to support wives and girlfriends through a shared love of singing.

Recordings of their rehearsals have been sent out to their loved ones in Afghanistan and the choir meets weekly at the air base church where Michael Dann, their choirmaster, puts them through their paces.
