A Ugandan choir will sing songs from their new album in Weston this weekend.

Watoto Children’s Choir will be performing twice at the Winter Gardens Pavilion on Sunday afternoon at 4pm and 7.30pm.

The group have travelled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s orphans and widows.

The concert is a fundraising event and choir members 
are orphans and other vulnerable children, many of them have suffered the loss of parents and live in a Ugandan village.

Accompanied by a team of adults, the choir presents Watoto’s vision and mission by sharing personal stories, music and dance.

While on the road, the children act as advocates for the millions of other African youngsters who have experienced similar traumas as them.

Tickets are free.
