A charity concert which will be raising money to support Sussex hospices is to be hosted by BBC presenter and Strictly Come Dancing star Katie Derham.

The celebratory evening of music will be held at Cumnor House School in Danehill on Saturday, March 5.

It will feature opera stars Felicity Lott, Sally Matthews and Jean Rigby, and exciting young choral group Viva Voce.

All of the money raised by the concert will go to Friends of Sussex Hospices, which supports 12 providers of hospice care in Sussex and has raised more than £1.5m in its 21 years.

The event is being sponsored by Adams & Remers solicitors, Coppard Plant Hire Ltd, Folkington’s Juices, Holroyd Howe contract catering and IpsoFacto Investor, so every penny raised will go to FSH.

Tickets cost £50 including welcome prosecco and light interval supper with wine. Book online at or contact Lisa Welton on 01825 721920, email
