TWO Britpop legends and one of the original rave scene pioneers are set to appear at a charity gig in Northwich in the spring.

Local charity Tiny Steps will once again bring the big names to town when it hosts its 'Disco Down' event at the Memorial Court on Friday, March 4.

The evening will feature Rick Witter and Paul Banks of hugely popular band Shed Seven, who will perform an intimate acoustic set.

The pair will be joined on the bill by record producer and musician 'A Guy Called Gerald' who as well as being an early member of 808 State, created the classic dance anthem 'Voodoo Ray'.

A Guy Called Gerald is coming to Northwich

Clint Boon, a regular support of Tiny Steps gigs in the town will also be on hand performing a DJ set and will be joined by Scott Burstow, the event organiser.

Scott said of the upcoming night: "We’ve been planning this night for around six to eight months now but couldn’t announce it, as we had so many other nights to sell that had moved because of Covid, but there’s no doubt it's going to be the biggest yet.

"Rick Witter has supported us previously and were so lucky he wants to help.

"Shed Seven have just come off a three month sell out tour so we feel blessed Rick and Paul are coming to Northwich.

"We tried to cater the line up so it appeals to many people with Clint Boon DJ-ing for us again and A Guy Called Gerald also supporting us for the first time and DJ-ing."

Scott is confident the already impressive line-up will be further enhanced by the announcement of even more acts very shortly.

"Again, these will be acts who haven’t played for Tiny Steps before, so something new," he added.

"Tickets went on sale on New Years Day and already we have people coming from Glasgow to Dover.

"We really hope the town comes along – the Tiny Steps nights are always magical, sell out and give the local community something to look forward to."

Tickets for the event are £27.50 with all proceeds going to the charity.
