Jools and his band continue to dazzle audiences across the UK with their exuberant live performances.

As well as  Melanie C and  Marc Almond, other vocalists include Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall.

The show is on Friday, August 29, from 7.30pm and tickets are £35.50 from the venue -, telephone 01843 292795.
