A NORTH Yorkshire choir will perform for the second time for the Tour de France on Saturday at the Royal Hall, Harrogate.

Rock Up and Sing! was formed five years ago and its youth choir was part of the official launch of the Yorkshire Grand Depart at Leeds Town Hall in early 2013.

About 200 singers from the group’s five choirs will sing at the Tour de France’s gala dinner on Saturday evening when cycling legends, leading members of the Tour’s organisers ASO, and VIPs from across the UK are expected to attend.
