It will be a vintage Christmas at The Elite Fish and Chip Company, in Sleaford, with a 1940s singer set to return.

Heather Marie performed at the restaurant in Grantham Road in June for Armed Forces Day, and is due to ‘serve up’ festive cheer at the eatery on Saturday, December 10.

As with the last music event, Elite will give profits raised to its chosen charity of the year, the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

Last time, the total raised was more than £1,600 and organisers are hoping Christmas spirits will raise even more this time.

Attendees can enjoy 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. To have her come back to play a set that will include Christmas classics is brilliant.”

Heather, who performs with husband Matthew, said: “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 priced at £17.50 are available from the Sleaford restaurant, or 01529 414534.
