Members of Three Left Feet sang wartime songs outside Lancaster’s FirstLight Trust café to fundraise for the charity and to promote their forthcoming production of Twelfth Night which is set during World War Two.

"We had a wonderful day entertaining shoppers with Forties tunes from our production of Twelfth Night and want to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated to FirstLight Trust,” said Elspeth Dale, the company’s creative producer and co-director.

“If you loved what you heard at the fundraiser, you certainly won't want to miss the interval performance at Twelfth Night."
