Sidmouth Choral Society has changed the time of their Christmas classical music show. 

Formal classical music will still be bought to Sidmouth Parish Church on December 9, as they have been doing for the last 167 years, but this year, the concert for the evening of December 9has been cancelled. Instead, a new event for families to come along in the afternoon of the same day, but at the earlier time of 4pm, so that carols can be sung with the church choir.

A spokesman for the show said: "It will be lovely with the Christmas lights looking so beautiful and the sound of carols bursting out from the church.

"We want Sidmouth to sing with us, and we want families to bring their children. Everybody needs to bring some joy in the hearts in these difficult times, and the choir is going to help them do just that."

Tickets are £5 and under 16s go free.
