Tickets [available from 1st Larne Church Office and the Larne Tourist Information Centre, or at the door on the night] are already selling extremely well for this event which gets underway at 8pm.

Roger Thompson, rector of St Patrick’s with All Saints, commented: “We are really excited about this concert and very grateful to 1st Larne for hosting it.  I love the sound of massed men’s voices and it’s great to see so many talented people from the local area taking part.”
