With more han 25 years of experience as a singer, he has gone from strength to strength, appearing in front of 20,000 people at the Darley Park Concert this summer.

On Saturday, November 24, he will sing at Broadway Baptist Church in Derby to raise money for Sight Support Derbyshire, which helps blind and partially-sighted adults and children face the everyday challenges of living with sight loss.

He will also be performing as one half of the duo Double Time with singer Hilary Leam.

The evening starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £8 and are available from Sight Support Derbyshire by calling 01332 292262 during office hours (9am to 5pm, Monday to Thursday).

Lynda Raven, Sight Support Derbyshire’s fundraising manager, said: “We are thrilled that Andy Quinn is singing for us. As he specialises in singing songs from the shows, there will be something for everyone. Our audience is in for a real treat.”
