A trio of choirs came together for a Valentine’s sing-a-long.

And it was a landmark date.

Members of Gledholt Male Voice Choir , Huddersfield Choral Society Youth Choir and Honley Ladies Choir joined forces to promote the last concert at Huddersfield Town Hall before it closes for months of repair work.

They descended on Huddersfield outdoor market in Brook Street to join the Mayor of Kirklees , Clr Paul Kane, in promoting the aptly named Last Night At The Hall concert.

The event on Saturday, March 5 will raise more cash for the Mayor’s charity, Diabetes Care .

Dozens of members sang up for the charity and provided a musical backdrop to the Upmarket Sunday event being hosted at the market.

Clr Kane said: “Within Kirklees, diabetes has taken hold of our communities , and is spreading like an epidemic.

“Nearly 25,000 people are suffering in Kirklees. One person in every 100 don’t yet know they have it.

“Only 30% of people who are diagnosed stick to their diet , treatment and alter their lifestyle by exercising.

Lack of exercise and poor diets are the biggest contributing factors for Type 2 Diabetes, which is preventable in 95% of cases .

“We can do something about this, and we must.”

The Last Night At The Hall concert will feature a programme of individual and joint pieces devised by directors Emily Reaves and Susan Wilkinson. Comperes will be Liz Green and Tim Crowther from Radio Leeds.

Jane Robertson will feature accompanying all three choirs.

Essential repairs will mean the major concert hall at the Huddersfield Town Hall will close for 20 weeks.

The hall will be out of bounds from March until August while vital work takes place to the roof.

Dozens of bookings have been affected and offered alternative venues.

To attend the concert that may literally raise the roof get tickets from Carole Kain on 01484 301610.
