Choirs tuning up to Sing for Pudsey at Scunthorpe Baths Hall
Choirs from across the region will take part in a fundraising concert to raise money for Children in Need.
The seven choirs will be performing in a competition called Sing for Pudsey – which is a contest modelled on television talent shows.
They will perform in front of a panel of judges on the night for a chance to win the Sing for Pudsey Champion's Trophy.
The event will take place on Friday, November 16 from 7pm at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe – and will be featured on the live show on the BBC that evening.

Jonathan Parker, who is hosting the live event on the night, said the Baths will get three live television opportunities on the night.
He said: "I think one of the things that is quite nice for people to see is that as well as the choirs and live entertainment, they get to be part of the live television show.
"All the proceeds, excluding VAT, go directly to Children in Need.
"We are hoping to sell about 400 to 500 tickets."
The venue will be set out as a nightclub.
The event will also feature a chance to buy Pudsey merchandise and a raffle with prizes.
Mr Parker, who has been involved with Children in Need for 10 years, said the total for the region would be counted up each time the live television show crossed over to the Baths Hall.
He said: "In each of the three television opportunities, we will give the total for the area.
"However, most of the money locally comes after the event.
"The Baths Hall is a fantastic venue."
The concert at the Baths Hall will also be featured live on BBC One, where the studio will cut to the venue at various points in the evening.
These segments will be hosted by BBC Look North presenter Peter Levy and weatherman Paul Hudson and parts of it will be broadcast live on Look North.
It will also be broadcast live on BBC Radio Humberside.
Choirs taking part include Hot Gospel, Voice Call, Shower Singers, Harmony Lincs, Ling Moor Primary School Choir, St Mary's College Hull and the Scunthorpe Co-operative Junior Choir.
At one point during the night, choirs from across the country, including our region, will take part in a live simultaneous broadcast – which will be conducted by Welsh singer Aled Jones.
Tickets cost £10, with concessions at £9, and are available from the Baths Hall box office on 0844 854 2776 or via the website www.scunthorpetheatres.co.uk
