Local singer and former ITV talent show contestant, Ruth Lockwood, will be performing musical classics at the Mayor of Rotherham’s penultimate official charity evening.

The operatic singer, who bowed out in the head-to-head stages of this year’s singing show ‘The Voice’, has been confirmed as the act headlining the Mayor’s special charity event titled ‘A Night in the West End’ which will take place at the Brooklands Club in Maltby.

Ruth said: “It’s great to come home and do a special gig in front of family and friends, it’s going to be a great night with lots of crowd-pleasers and all for such great causes.”

All proceeds from the night will go towards the Mayor’s three chosen charities, Alzheimer’s Society, National Autistic Society and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Cllr Lyndsay Pitchley, Mayor of Rotherham, said: “To have Ruth sing for us on the night is fantastic, she’s a great local talent and is sure to help raise a lot of money for the charities. We want as many people to come down and support what is sure to be a wonderful night of great entertainment, all for brilliant causes.”

The performance will be the Mayor’s penultimate charity evening before handing over the civic chain to current Deputy Mayor, Cllr Eve Keenan, in May. Cllr Pitchley’s final charity night will be on Saturday 29 April at her Champagne and Diamonds Ball at Magna Science Adventure Centre, where a flawless diamond worth £2,000 and a pair of diamond earrings worth £500, both donated from a local jewellers, are being given away in a raffle.

‘A Night at the West End’ will take place at the Brooklands Club, Maltby on Friday 14th April. Tickets cost £10 and doors will open from 7:30pm.
