There will be dancing from members of Sidmouth Ballet School, folk singing from The Claques, local GP Peter Fung will play guitar and sing and Laura Glad will play the cello.
There will even be a performance by Paws 2 Dance, offering canine musical freestyle moves.
Favourites Wally Cotgrave and Mo Cuthbert are also in the line-up, together with opera star Val Howels, comedian Baz Breadmore and there will be songs from students at Sidmouth College.
Shirley’s concert will this year be preceded by A Night of Choirs, also in aid of SLWC, which has been organised by one of the group’s founders, Bill Lankester, MBE.
On at the theatre on Thursday, October 27 from 7.30pm, this gala evening will include performances by the Rivertones Barber Shop Choir, Sidmouth Songsters and Sidmouth Cameo Singers.
