But who are CelloPhonics?  Local musician and founding member, Cat Ledgerwood, explains:

“CelloPhonics is a new collective of musicians from around Yorkshire performing covers of pop songs, as well as some original material.  We have gathered a few of our friends to perform with us in this family-friendly concert, in aid of the Matugga Revival Center in Uganda.  We would love you to come along!”

All proceeds from this event will be going to the centre via the local charity “Give a Child a Hope” which was set up to support the work of Bishop Ivan Lugolobi and his team in Uganda.  The evening will be held in the Hall of St. John’s Church, Ben Rhydding.  The concert will be set in a relaxed, cafe-style environment.  There will be a bar available.

Tickets : £5 per adult, £12 family.  Available from the Church Office (601430) or the Vicarage (607363).
