Shakespeare's famous words and operas by iconic composers are coming to a Suffolk church in aid of a local hospice.
St Peter and St Paul Church in Aldeburgh will be hosting an afternoon of music and verse in October to raise money for St Elizabeth Hospice – with an "array of musical and spoken delights" on offer.
Pianist Warren Shattles will be among the performers, alongside soprano Helen Hardwick and actor Elizabeth Elsworth, with a mix of popular classics, light opera and spoken word coming to the stage.
Money raised will go to the hospice and its work with the East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH), to provide free palliative care to patients and families throughout east Suffolk and Great Yarmouth.
Lesley Rawlinson, a community and partnerships fundraiser for the hospice said: “This will be a wonderful event, full of high quality performances for all to enjoy and one which will bring the community together.
