THE Stourbridge branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution is presenting the Magic of Gilbert and Sullivan at Stourbridge Town Hall later this month.

Taking place on Sunday May 18, the evening will feature the most memorable moments from Gilbert and Sullivan's Savoy Operas and stars from the original D'Oyly Carte - with performers Jill Washington (soprano), Patricia Leonard (contralto), Bruce Graham (baritone), Barry Clark (tenor), Alistair Donkin (baritone) and Ian Kennedy (piano).

RNLI Stourbridge branch chairman Chris Fonteyn said: "We are very proud to promote this event which is being held to raise much needed funds for the lifeboat service and its volunteer crews as it approaches its busiest time of the year."

The concert starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £13 and £14 (stalls) and £15 (balcony) and they are available from Dudley Council Plus on 01384 812812 or from Books Unlimited, Lower High Street, Stourbridge.
