The 2012 Village Concert, staged by Lympstone Entertainments, will be on 21st January. Producer John Welton has once again begged, bullied and beguiled a most exciting variety of local talent to guarantee your enjoyment of this ever-popular winter warmer. Some names will be familiar and sure of their welcome; others will be strutting their stuff for the very first time, on their way to becoming stars of the future.
