A LOCAL choir will be joined by schoolchildren when it performs as part of this year's Otley Christmas Tree Festival.

The 2018 festival runs from Wednesday December 12 to Saturday December 15 and will see Otley Parish Church filled with dozens of trees decorated by local charities or community groups.

The Chippendale Singers, directed by Lee Wiltamuth and accompanied by Mike Rodgers, will perform a selection of carols and festive music at the church from 7pm on Friday, December 14.

They will be joined by pupils from Westgate Primary School under the guidance of Headteacher Helen Carpenter.

Refreshments and a raffle will also be available at the concert. Tickets cost £5 (children under 11 free) and will be available on the door.
