“The Burnley Mechanics is a fantastic theatre to perform in and it’s a show where I want everyone in the room to be in he moment and have a wonderful night.”

“Music has been a family thing really, especially musicals at the Hippodrome,” he said.

“It snowballed from the am dram scene and I am just about to release my own album in August/early September.

“It’s been one of the toughest years I’ve yet faced and I just want to be me for the night and let the music come from the heart.

“The night will consist of many songs from rock, pop, Disney and more!

“I want to showcase a wide variety of genres for all to enjoy!”

Joining him on stage will be Tom Scothern from 7-30 to 8pm.
