A choral show celebrating the rise and fall of Henry VIII’s warship the Mary Rose, will be performed by two Thetford singing groups.

The Thetford Singers will take to the stage to perform English composer Alexander L’Estrange’s Ahoy! Sing for the Mary Rose.

Last year’s performance of Zimbe!, which featured the Admirals Academy Singers, was a success and the pupils have been invited back for this year’s show which takes place on Thursday, July 20.

Held at the Carnegie Room, there will be a live band at the show, which will include an accordion.

L’Estrange’s exciting choral cantata celebrates the Mary Rose which sank 500 years ago and was raised in 1982.
