Isle of Wight hosting music events this weekend

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays this weekend have a choice of events to go to on Saturday night (October 20th) during their time on the island.

Island-based performers are going to be taking to the stage at the Salvation Army Centre in Newport to raise funds for the charity.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, among those lined up to perform on the night are Undercliff Singers, Niton Male Voice Choir and the Salvation Army's own band.

Pete and the Pickups, Teenage Dirtbag and Ryde School band Capo4 are all also going to be on the bill for the night's entertainment, meaning there should be something for everyone who goes along to the show this weekend.

Duncan Heenan, secretary of charity, Friends of Fellowship House, said: "Support from local talent is really great and we're hoping lots of folk will come for the sake of the music, as well as the cause."

People who go along to the show will be helping the Salvation Army's LifeHouse, which is located at Fellowship House, Green Street, Ryde.

The news provider has also reported on an event being held at Newport's Medina Theatre that has been put together by island group the Wight Hot Pipes.

They will be joining the likes of Rose and Thistle Pipes and Drums from Portsmouth, as well as the Voxpop Choir of voices from the island, the Medina Marching Band and the soprano Sam Howard on the night.

Mr Piano Man Matt Black will be acting as the compere of the night and money raised from the show is set to go to the Isle of Wight charity the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

Other gigs taking place on the Isle of Wight this Saturday night include The MoonShiners, who are playing at the Sun Inn, while The In Crowd are going to be taking to the stage at the Bugle in Yarmouth and Karen Tweed will be singing live at Niton Parish Church.
