“I’m absolutely delighted to have been invited to lead the new youth choir at the Lichfield Garrick,” she said. “I’m looking forward to working with Tim Ford and the entire team.

“The choir is open to anyone aged between 13 and 21 and all abilities are welcome. We will be covering music of all genres and it will be a fantastic opportunity to sing and improve your vocal skills in a friendly and fun ensemble.

“I am excited to see what the youth of Lichfield have to offer.”

The new youth choir will meet for the first time at the Garrick on November 12.

The theatre’s artistic director Tim Ford said: “We are delighted to be reigniting this wonderful project and I am thrilled to welcome Angharad to the Garrick.

“Lichfield’s young people are in for a real treat as Angharad has a wealth of experience and knowledge. I cannot wait to hear the theatre come alive with the sound of young voices.”

The Garrick Youth Choir will meet every Thursday from November 12 between 5.30pm and 7pm. Each term costs £55, but as the first term is shorter (November to December) it will cost £35. To book a place call 01543 412121 or visit www.lichfieldgarrick.com.
