It incorporates Abba favourites such as Take a Chance on Me and I Have a Dream and Dancing Queen.

After spending the day learning the songs, the group will perform a 45-minute concert – free to the public and culminating in the Mamma Mia medley – at 4pm.

The aim of the day, says Robyn Keech, the Staxton Singers’ musical director, is to allow the public to experience the joy of singing together.

“It will be a sociable, uplifting and fun day,” said Robyn, who trained in musical theatre at Scarborough’s Westwood College and Leeds College of Music. “No experience is necessary. All you need is your voice, enthusiasm and, perhaps, a liking for Abba.”
