STARS from the West End will be performing at a village church.

Professional music ensemble Toccata will putt on its Nostalgia 2011 concert at St Mary’s Church in Ivinghoe on Sunday, July 31.

It will be the first time the parts of the band will come together after separate rehearsals.

Judith Sheridan, who leads the church choir and the Beacon Community Choir, is the artistic director and conductor.
