The Voice in a Million choir, which will include hundreds of children from around the North-East, will perform at Newcastle City Hall on Sunday, November 25.

Youngsters from schools around the region will be taking part, as well as members of Stagecoach theatre groups from Darlington and Yarm.

The show, the Orphans Christmas Wish, starts at 7.30pm. For tickets, call 0191-277-8030 or visit newcastlecityhall.org
