Can you sing like an an­gel?

Accrington Observer - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

AN ap­peal has been launched to find singers to per­form at the up­com­ing Altham An­gels fes­ti­val.

Or­gan­is­ers say they have been ‘let down at the last minute’ by the singer booked to per­form at the event on Satur­day, Septem­ber 9.

The fes­ti­val will see gar­dens across Altham filled with large an­gels made by res­i­dents us­ing items from pa­per to lorry parts.

Par­ish­ioners at St James Church in Altham will hold the sec­ond ac­tion-packed fes­ti­val on Septem­ber 9-10.

Les Moore, church war­den, said: “Can you sing like an an­gel? If you can then here’s an op­por­tu­nity for any­one try­ing to make a name for them­selves in the mu­sic in­dus­try.

“As this is a com­mu­nity event, rather than leave a gap in the pro­gramme, they have de­cided to see if any­one would like to fill the gap for free, in ex­change for the op­por­tu­nity to dis­play their tal­ents.

If sev­eral peo­ple re­spond then the slot will be ex­tended by an hour, fully acous­tic and streamed live on Facebook.”

Any­one in­ter­ested in per­form­ing should con­tact Claire at clair­erat­clif­fewil­son@ google­
