The community choir, based at Ainsdale Methodist Church, Southport, gave the concert of songs from the movies and musicals in July. It was attended by Lynn Sugden and Kate Hughes from the MDU.

Octave gives two or three concerts for charity each year. Members have raised more than £25,000 since forming 15 years ago.
