big name singers will grace Wakefield Cathedral in November for a fundraising concert in aid of Help For Heroes.

English tenor Jonathan Ansell will headline the concert, titled That Glorious Noise, supported by Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley.

Jonathan will also be accompanied by three of his most skilled and trusted musicians, and choral support will come from award-winning Wakefield choir the Rodillian Singers and Wakefield Youth Choir.

The cathedral provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of high-quality entertainment with a seasonal theme.

Subtle lighting will highlight the stunning architecture of the cathedral, and the excellent acoustics will contribute to a show that is quite different from a tradtional theatre performance.

Jonathan Ansell shot to fame as part of operatic quartet G4, who were finalists in the X Factor. Since 2007 he has carved a solo career, releasing albums Tenor at the Movies and Forever.

Catherine Tyldesley plays newcomer Eva in Coronation Street, with previous TV credits including Emmerdale, Red Riding and Holby City, and is renowned for her mezzo-soprano voice as well as her acting.

That Glorious Noise takes place on Saturday November 12, doors open at 6.30pm with the concert starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £25 or £65 for VIP tickets which include priority seating, programme and champagne reception after the event, available from or 01924 918679.
