Funds are being raised by ticket sales, and through sponsorship, with every performer seeking support from friends, neighbours and relations.

Day tickets, allowing re-entry, cost �2.50, or �6 for a day ticket and admission to the grand finale. Both are available on the door or from Baldock Community Centre in advance.

The event has been organised by Churches Together in Baldock (CTIB) and demonstrates that the spirit of ecumenism is alive and flourishing in Baldock.

Penny Oliver from CTIB commented: "There is so much musical talent in Baldock and the whole community has pulled together to put on this unique event to preserve our landmark church tower for future generations.
