A CELEBRATION of the great British summer is being given by the Lea Singers this weekend.
Conductor James Sherlock will be making his debut at Rothamsted Manor in Harpenden on Saturday evening and the choir will repeat the midsummer concert at the former Bishop's Palace in Ashridge Woods on Sunday.

In addition to his performances with his own Piano Trio and as organist of St Bartholomew the Great in Smithfield, London, he has recently taken over the role of Lea Singers conductor from Madeleine Lovell.
