Brian Eno favourite Belle Chen has announced a show in the city as the internationally regarded pianist looks to impress at the Capstone Theatre next Friday.

One of the biggest North West festivals in NBHD Weekender has revealed that Ian Brown and Catfish & The Bottlemen are set to headline the Warrington indie bonanza. The line-up has to be seen to be believed as it is that packed with indie icons new and old.
