PETER Andre has been announced as the final headliner of a Cheshire festival.

The chart-topping heartthrob will take to the stage at Chester 7s this summer.

Known for hits such as Flava, I Feel You and Mysterious Girl, Andre joins Five, Phats and Small, Switch Dizo and Ibiza in Symphony on the lineup.

Having hosted the likes of Martin and Roman Kemp, Chris Stark, Scott Mills and Judge Jules in the past, organiser Tom King thinks 2024 could be the best year yet.

He said: “This year looks like it's going to be the biggest lineup we’ve had so far.

“It’s exciting. We’re proud to have built a business that can attract these names.

“It’s not always easy to attract artists to events, as you can imagine their diaries are very busy, so we’re proud that they’ve decided to come to what is a family-run event that has taken a lot of hard work to get where it is.”

Asked who he is most looking forward to, Tom added: “I think there are a few ladies in the family excited to see Peter Andre and Five.

“I’m really excited to seeing Ibiza in Symphony personally, that’s my sort of music.

“There’s something for everyone!”

Chester 7s started 12 years ago, initially just as a rugby tournament.

Since then, it has grown and grown, moving to Winnington Park Rugby Club eight years ago.

While there has been a greater focus on music, sport remains an important part of the festivities, with around 100 rugby and netball teams expected to compete this year.

“As we’ve grown we’ve recognised that the appeal of the event is in the artists and the music side of things, hence we’ve started to build that profile,” Tom added.

A former St Nicholas Catholic High School pupil, Tom is pleased to be able to attract artists of Andre’s calibre to the area.

He said: “We’re a local family that are trying to do our best for ourselves and the local community.

“We’re passionate about bringing a great event to Northwich and keeping it in Northwich.”

Chester 7s takes place on June 28 and 29.

Tickets are on sale now, with weekend tickets priced at £50.
