Scotland’s international star Martin Aelred, described as the Dalai Lama’s favourite classical tenor, is the star guest at a local charity concert next month.

It’s being held on Friday, February 12, at the Great Barn, Manor Mews, Tattersett (which is just off the A148 Lynn to Fakenham road).

The concert starts at 7pm and there will be an interval at 8.30pm when the bar will be open. Tickets are available now at £10 each from Fiona on 01485 528310 or Jan 07789902961.

From Scotland to the world stage, Martin has performed for Prince Charles and the Dalai Lama and to sold out audiences in New York, London, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

He is a high C tenor – and a trained classical and Flamenco guitarist – and it is a coup for the local organisers to book him for this fundraising concert.

The event is in support of Let The Children Live! which is a charity that works in Colombia with children from the streets and shanty-towns of the city of Medellín.

The charity was founded in 1992 by Fr Peter Walters, of Walsingham Abbey, who first became involved with the street-children in 1982 when they helped him after he became temporarily stranded in the country.
