Andante Choir will be live at the United Reformed Church on Saturday evening, for a charity concert in aid of CAFFE (Computers Are Free For Everyone).

CAFFE – formed in Bedford and based in Bangladesh – uses technology to provide education to under-privileged students.

Andente actually formed with the aim of raising funds to swell the coffers of others.

Their repertoire spans chamber choral music to church anthems, and from spirituals to music from the stage and screen.

The ticket price of £10 includes drinks and nibbles.
