A HOSPICE based in St Asaph is to hold a spring concert at the city’s cathedral in April.

On Saturday, April 6, St Kentigern Hospice’s spring concert will see St Asaph Cathedral filled with the sound of choirs and soloists, as performers from across the community come together.

The evening will feature performances from the Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir, Ysgol Glan Clwyd pupils, as well as a special performance from the host for the evening, Welsh operatic baritone John Ieuan Jones.

A variety of music will be performed throughout the evening in both English and Welsh.

Proceeds from the event will be put towards St Kentigern’s running costs.

Sian Golding, fundraiser at St Kentigern, said: “We are honoured to be supported on this very special evening by such talented individuals.

“To be able to bring our community together and celebrate the beauty of local Welsh music truly is a privilege.

“This concert is an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful evening surrounded by likeminded individuals whilst raising vital funds for your local hospice.

“Thanks to the generous sponsorship by Salisbury Chartered Accountants, all proceeds raised through this fundraising event will be donated directly to St Kentigern Hospice.”

St Kentigern provides free specialist palliative care services for adults across North East Wales.

In 2023, the annual hospice running costs exceeded £2.6million, which equated to more than £7,252.37 per day.

Just 28 per cent of this will come from Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board; the equivalent of 93 days of the year.

Tickets for this event are £15 and can be purchased online, or by calling the fundraising team on 01745 536020.

Doors to this event will open at 7pm, with the concert beginning at 7.30pm.
