The historic chapel at Fulwood Barracks, Preston, played house to a charity choral performance by the city’s Orpheus Choir.
‘Loyal and Royal’ was the theme of the event and it was held to commemorate the coronation 60 years ago of Queen Elizabeth II.
Scores of people attended the event, which was held in the Chapel at the barracks in Watling Street Road, on Saturday night.
Frederick Parker, publicity officer for the Orpheus Choir, said: “It was a very good night, it was very well appreciated.
“There was about 80 people there.
“It went very well.
“They had two other choirs there this year. It was the last one of a series of concerts.”
The 42 (NW) Brigade Padre Rev Colin Butler added: “It was a splendid night.
“It is the third in a serious of concerts to mark the diamond coronation.
“We have held three concerts in support of military charities.”
The music was a mixture of coronation songs and songs from the British Isles.
All proceeds from the evening will be in aid of Armed Forces’ charity SSAFA.
SSAFA provides practical support and assistance to servicemen and women, veterans, and the families of both, every single day of the year.

The Orpheus Choir was founded in 1929 by Arthur Fountain who was organist at the Preston Parish Church.
Since then the choir has performed many of the large scale choral works but in the last 25 years its repertoire has been widened.
