The newly renovated Newport Minster will be hosting a concert in aid of people living with dementia and their carers.

The Phoenix Choir will perform at the venue on Saturday, July 13, in support of the Minster's new community project for dementia patients.

Community engagement coordinator, Hannah Griffiths, said: "We will be focusing on a number of areas including dementia friendly activities, this will be a programme of dementia friendly services, a conversational cafe and creative activities supported by Independent Arts which will all be funded through donations from this event.

"All the staff and volunteers at Newport Minster complete Alzheimer’s Society dementia friendly sessions as part of their induction.”

Musical director of the choir, Robin Burnett, said it was a "truly worthwhile cause."

The choir will be singing songs from popular stage shows like Phantom of the Opera, Cats and The Lion King, as well as film classics from Titanic, We Were Soldiers and Gladiator amongst others.

Admission is free with collections going towards funding the dementia project.

The concert starts at 7.30pm, with doors open from 7pm.
