Tickets selling fast for charity Harvest Festival Concert at Beverley Minster

Published: 01/09/2013

Ticket's for Drewton's Farm Shop's charity fundraising Harvest Festival Concert in Beverley Minster, which will be a spectacular celebration of Yorkshire's fabulous food and drink, are selling like hot cakes.

The event, which is planned for the evening of Friday 4 October, will raise funds for five local charities - Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Dove House Hospice, The Leeds Teaching Hospital's Lymphoedema Service, GoKidsGo! and The Alzheimer's Society.

It will coincide with Drewton's Farm Shop's third Birthday and is a unique take on the idea of giving thanks for the harvest. Performers will include the highly renowned Howden-based tenor Steven Goulden and his accompanist Peter Sproston; local soprano Lucy Bates; the Lyndhurst School Choir and musicians; Pocklington School Music Theatre Society; 16-year old Bethany Gilbert, who is flying in from Ireland to take part in the event and recently won the title 'most promising pianist' at a major annual music festival; the Salvation Army;

Longcroft School's Gospel Choir; and Robert Poyser, who will accompany Lucy Bates on the piano and then perform on the Minster's organ.

Drewton's proprietor Katie Taylor was keen to organise a large-scale event that would acknowledge the wealth of wonderful food and drink produced here in Yorkshire and, at the same time, benefit a number of good causes that are close to her heart.

She said: "We've been overwhelmed by the level of interest and support from our customers, and tickets have been selling fast for what promises to be a fantastic evening of musical entertainment.

"Beverley Minster is an amazing setting for our event and the concert will be followed by an opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine and tasty Yorkshire cheeses, and meet a variety of local food producers, who have kindly agreed to support the event."

Tickets, priced at £15 for adults and £10 for ten to 16 year olds, are on sale now from Drewton's Farm Shop, or can be booked and paid for over the phone by calling 01430 425079. They are also available from the Tourist Information Centre in Beverley. Anyone who has not yet reserved their tickets is advised to order them as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

Gifts of food (with a longer shelf life only) can be donated on the evening and they will be distributed locally by the Salvation Army, in partnership with Churches Together and the Holderness and Wold Food Bank of Driffield.
