A popular South African choir will make a welcome return to Shipham next month to perform Zulu songs and dances.

Project Zulu is made up of children from the Umcebowolwazi and Siyawela Primary schools in Madadeni.

The children have perfected a new range of Zulu songs and dances for the tour, which will take them across England and Wales.

Their last concert in Shipham in 2016 was a sell-out and the singers are looking forward to returning on May 26. The show will begin at 7pm in the village hall.

Project Zulu is an educational development project run by the University of the West of England, which promotes lifelong learning opportunities in the deprived township in KwaZulu-Natal.

All the money raised from the tour will be used to develop the facilities at the children’s schools.

Tickets are free, but must be pre-booked. Contact Andrew Newton on 01934 843246 or at
