A 19th Century manor house in Herefordshire is the setting for a Choir Camp starring the lead singer from the 70s pop group the Three Degrees.

Sheila Ferguson, famous for hits like 'When Will I See You Again', 'Woman in Love' and 'Take Good Care of Yourself', will be a Dunfield House, Kington, next month.

Choir Camp 2019 is the brainchild of conductor, arranger and concert impresario Matthew Jones and follows the success of previous camps with Kiki Dee and Peter Straker.

The self-proclaimed 'Patron Saint of the Tone-deaf', Jones is a passionate believer that anybody can learn to sing and has trained music-lovers everywhere to play such venues as the Royal Albert Hall and record with the likes of Boy George to critical acclaim.

Singers aged 18 upwards and of all abilities will take over the House from June 7-9.

Requisitioned during World War II for the American forces, Dunfield House was a bolthole for Winston Churchill for high-level meetings and elaborate dinners. Nearby Hergest Ridge inspired Mike Oldfield's 1974 album of the same name and, according to local folklore, the chilling legend surrounding its Court was drawn upon by Arthur Conan Doyle for his classic 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'.

Since leaving the Three Degrees, Sheila Ferguson has gone on to star in theatre roles and television shows such as BBC's 'The Real Marigold on Tour' and ITV's 'Hard to Please OAPs'.
