A MUSICAL event featuring everything from the sounds of the 1940s to contemporary choral classics is coming to Dorchester.

The Mayor's Musical Mashup event at the United Church on Saturday, February 11 has been organised by the county town's first citizen Tim Harries and mayoress Anita Harries and will raise funds for three worthy causes.

Starting at 7.30pm, the evening promises a feast of musical entertainment from the Decadettes, a four-part harmony group singing tunes from across the decades, the Pop Club featuring the finest young talent and the Rock Choir, a group of local singers performing feel-good music.

The event will raises funds for Cllr Harries' mayoral charities for the year - the Dorchester Poverty Action Group, the Dorchester Social Stroke Club and the Keep Military Museum.

Entry will be free with a collection held for the mayor's causes and Cllr Harries is hoping for a bumper turnout at the church.

He said: "There's something for everyone with the Decadettes, Pop Club and the Rock Choir and there will be tea, coffee and refreshments served at half time.

"We just wanted to put something on to add to our funds and something for the community.

"It should be a lot of fun and hopefully everyone will enjoy themselves.

"We want to get as many people there as we possible can and let's hope they have a good time and chuck some money in our buckets."

The event is the latest fundraiser held by Cllr Harries for his chosen causes with other events during his mayoral year including a photo competition and a Thomas Hardy themed 'Mayor's Meanderings' event.

Cllr Harries said he wanted to thank everyone involved in organising the event at the United Church.
