Concerts to aid historic Warwickshire church

A historic village church is to host a music festival as an estimated £130,000 has to be found for repairs.

The 10-day event starting on Friday in Wootton Wawen, Warwickshire, was targeted to raise £10,000 for St Peter's, which is 1,000-years-old.

Brass bands and choirs will be among those performing.

Canon Lawrence Mortimer said: "Thanks to Herculean efforts and £48,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund we're within £25,000 of the target."
