CRAVEN Accordion Orchestra will unite with Carleton Ladies Choir for a Christmas concert in Skipton.

The presentation will be at Skipton Town Hall on Saturday, December 1 from 7.30pm and will raise money for the Manorlands hospice in Oxenhope.

Orchestra spokesman Harry Hinchcliffe said: “This is the second year the event has been held by the two organisations, starting off the festive season with music and songs to suit all tastes.”

The Craven Accordion Orchestra was founded in 1995, starting out as a social gathering of 12 accordionists and two keyboard players.

The group took part in local music events, such as the Skipton Music Festival and the Robertshaw Festival.

Tickets for the concert cost £8 for adults and £6 for concessions. Email or call 07401 768356 to book tickets.
