A charity concert for the NSPCC will be taking place at the Astor Theatre in Deal

A charity concert to raise money for a children’s charity will be taking place at the Astor Theatre this weekend.

Classics for Charity will be in Deal this Sunday at 3pm and will feature a programme of classical and modern music performed by local artists.

It will be raising money for the NSPCC and is organised by Mark Heller, a senior lecturer at the University of Kent.

Works to be performed will include Chopin, Rachmaninov, Albeniz, Liszt, Beethoven and Dvorák.

Organiser Mr Heller performs regularly across the south east and also runs a monthly classical concert series at the Astor.

NSPCC community fundraising manager Binita Shah said: “This will be the third concert Mark has held for us and we’re really grateful to him for all his efforts. He’s very passionate about our work and has supported us since he was young.

“This event should appeal to anyone interested in music - you don’t need to be a big classical fan as the musical variety caters for everyone.”

Tickets can be purchased from the Astor Theatre Box Office, Stanhope Road, Deal, or by visiting the website www.theastor.org or by contacting the NSPCC on 0203 188 3932.

There are lots of volunteering opportunities for the NSPCC, from helping at a collection in a shopping centre, taking parts in events like the London Marathon, to becoming a ChildLine Schools Service volunteer.

To find out more call 020 3188 3932 or email southlondonandsoutheast@nspcc.org.uk.
