Nature lovers have been invited to explore some of Sidmouth's most beautiful trees before attending an aptly-themed concert.

The free event will take place on June 10 from 6.30pm and will include a walk led by Jill Gray from Sidmouth Arboretum.

More than 30 people are already expected to attend and will be meeting at the bottom of The Byes, in Salcombe Road, before embarking on a walk through Margaret’s Meadow.

Those who attend will be introduced to some of the town’s oldest residents while in all their summer glory - this will include a magnificent ash, a sycamore tree and a some pretty willows.

Attendees will then be able to enjoy tea, coffee and nibbles at the Unitarian Church, in All Saints Road, before a special tree-themed concert commences at 7.30pm.

A group of around a dozen singers, from Sidmouth Vocal Practice, will take to the stage accompanied by Dorothy Worthington on the piano.

Mirian Broam, a vocal student, said: “It is going to be a lovely and beautiful event. I have never heard of an event like this before – it is something quite new. I think it is a really good idea, combining people’s love of trees with their love of singing.”
