Ely resident and long term supporter of East Cambridgeshire Arts, Martin Gent, is to celebrate his 70th birthday with a musical extravaganza in Ely Cathedral.

The social and musical evening will be held on September 29 in aid of the cathedral's music fund. More than 60 singers will perform a selection of music selected from Mr Gent's favourites including Purcell and Byrd. They hope to give the fund a £4,000 boost from ticket sales to add to the £2,000 already donated by Mr Gent's singers.

INFO: Tickets are available from Ely Cathedral box office on 01353 660349 or at www.cathedral.ely.anglican.
