Last updated at 18:22, Tuesday, 26 February 2013
A HEXHAM choir is enjoying a touch of stardom after featuring in a new British movie.
Members of the Hexham Orpheus Choir flexed their vocal muscles for scenes in the newly released ‘Song For Marion’ which stars Vanessa Redgrave (pictured) and Terence Stamp.
The group are just one of the North-East choirs to feature as extras in the film based around an unconventional choir of OAPs.

Prudhoe workers were queuing up at the town's employment exchange to put their names down for jobs at a new £15million wood pulp factory.
Plans for the factory, which would occupy the former ICI site, had been passed by Northumberland County Council, and it was hoped that when it opened it would turn Prudhoe into a boom town.
Many of those registering for jobs had been unemployed since the ICI plant closed down the previous July.
