Members of the county’s Military Wives Choir will perform in a national event commemorating 100 years since the start of the First World War this weekend.

Nine women from the choir will appear at London’s Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC’s annual Proms.

Sunday’s event will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and will feature in a BBC television documentary in November.

The six women from RAF Brize Norton and three from RAF Benson were selected after auditions in February. They will be part of a 100-strong choir performing songs from the War Horse musical to an audience of 6,000.
