A CHRISTMAS show is aiming to empower people to 're-gain their independence and voices in the community.'

Service users of the mental health charity Response are organising an evening of entertainment to raise money for the charity and showcase their talents.

Featuring drama, poetry, comedy and dance, the performance will be topped off with some classic Christmas songs.

Laura Boone, producer of the show, said: "This will be the first time many of the performers have been in front of an audience.

"It's a great chance for them to show off their talents"

It takes place on December 15 at 7pm at St Clement's Family Centre.

Tickets are £7 and available from www.wegottickets.com/event/419325
