A vintage Christmas charity music event in Sleaford this Saturday is almost a complete sell-out with only eight tickets left to sell in aid of the Poppy Appeal.

The fish and chip restaurant on Grantham Road in town will welcome back 1940s singer and performer Heather Marie.

Having performed at the Elite back in June for Armed Forces Day, the 40s-themed singer is to bring some festive cheer to the eaterie on Saturday.

As with the last live music event, the Elite is set to give all profits to the firm’s chosen charity of the year, The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

Last time the customers, suppliers and restaurant managed to raise an impressive £1,686.60 and are hoping the Christmas spirit will raise even more this time.

Those who secure tickets for the night can expect a fish and chip supper, mince pies and a set that will mix 1940s classics like ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and ‘Pennies From Heaven’ with Christmas songs.

Manager at the Sleaford restaurant Rachel Tweedale said: “We had such great fun last time Heather Marie performed in the restaurant. People were dancing and singing along and it made for a great atmosphere.

“To have her come back to play a set that will include Christmas classics is brilliant. We’d love to see as many people joining in with the singing and raising as much as we can for charity.”

Heather Marie, who performs alongside her husband Matthew as part of her act, added: “We had such an amazing night last time we visited Elite. The reaction was great and I’m so glad to make my return for a Christmas-themed evening.”

Tickets cost £17.50, which includes a fish and chip supper, mince pies from Welbourne’s bakery in Navenby, Christmas crackers and the musical performance.
