A MAGICAL concert by an internationally-renowned soprano raised more than £2,000 towards restoring a historic village hall.

More than 200 people attended the Family Connections concert featuring soprano Charlotte de Rothschild accompanied by harpist Danielle Perrett at The Church of St Peter and St Paul in Tring town centre.

The performance on Saturday, September 24 was given a standing ovation and raised about £2,100 towards the restoration of Hastoe Village Hall.

Chairman of the village hall trust David Ridgwell said: “It was quite a magical evening.

“The money has helped to raise a total of £50,000, which we are hoping will be matched by a grant from the Chiltern Leader Fund.
