The Nottingham charity Our Dementia Choir, founded by actress Vicky McClure will be performing in the city centre this weekend.

The choir will be joined on stage at Binks Yard by 2013 X Factor winner Sam Bailey on Friday, June 2.

The group was founded in 2018 after the Nottingham actress witnessed the battles her grandmother faced with dementia and has more than 25 members.

Since then, the choir has performed to an audience of 24,000 people at Splendour Festival, wowed crowds at the Theatre Royal, and made numerous TV appearances on shows such as This Morning or ITV Loose Women.

Ben Hicklin, head of events at Binks Yard, said: “It’s such an honour to welcome Our Dementia Choir to the Binks Yard stage.

“Since they first hit our TV screens back in 2018, the choir has certainly captured the hearts of the nation.

“They are a shining example of the power of music and how it can be used to transform lives, so their upcoming performance is a really special one for us.

“We’ll also be showing our support for the fantastic cause by making a charitable donation to help them continue the amazing work they do supporting those living with dementia across the UK.”

During the evening, the choir will be supporting 2013 X Factor winner Sam Bailey, who will be performing her biggest hits, including Skyscraper, The Power of Love, and From This Moment On.

Throughout her career, she’s supported the likes of Beyoncé on tour and starred in multiple musicals across the nation.

Ben added: “We’re really excited to be welcoming Sam Bailey back to her East Midlands roots to perform on the Binks stage. Since her winning performance on the X Factor, her powerhouse vocals have been wowing crowds across the UK.
