The debut tour by a Hull-based community choir has been announced, with seven dates across East Yorkshire including Beverley.

When Beverley Town Council organised the first Food Festival in 2006, little did they know it would go on to be an annual success enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors alike.
The original idea was to bring a few producers from Beverley’s rural hinterland into the town centre to help celebrate local food, so on a crisp Sunday morning in 2006, thirty-five producers set up their stalls along with a small Food Theatre, in what proved to be a big success for the Town Council – one that has grown stronger year on year.
Having been inspired by the efforts of the Beverley in Bloom Group who drew in all parts of the community, to make the town a better environment in which to live, and being a finalist in the Britain in Bloom campaign, it was felt that Beverley Town Council should try and carry on the momentum and revive the Brighter Beverley Group.
