A RENOWNED Tudor singing group will be taking people back in time when they perform at the Almonry Heritage Centre on Saturday night (May 10) as a fundraising event for the Great Big Almonry Project.

An evening of Tudor merriment has been planned with vocals from Musyck Anon, the Tudor Maydes will be demonstrating dancing steps whilst film special effects and make-up artist, Steve Chambers, will apply plague boils and pustules to whoever is brave enough.

There will be the plague mask making corner for young visitors and mead sampling for the older ones and a raffle including prizes from Evesham Arts Centre, Spirit of Freedom on Avon, Evesham Light Railway, Evesham Garden Centre and Majestic Wine.

Tonia Collett, manager of the Almonry, which needs £1.7 million for vital improvements, said: "We're so grateful to Musyck Anon for suggesting this great opportunity to help us raise funds for the Great Big Almonry Project, and to everyone else involved who has volunteered their time.

"The bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund was submitted in March, but whilst we’re waiting for their decision, the fundraising continues."

Tickets are £5 for adults, £2 for under 16s and each ticket entitles you to a drink and slice of cake on arrival.

You must book to attend and to do so call the Almonry office on 01386 446944 or for more information on the project visit greatbigalmonryproject.com.
