Grammy award winner Adele performed at Lancaster Library as part of the award winning Get It Loud in Libraries project.

The project, which started in 2005, enabled internationally acclaimed musicians such as Adele, Jessie J, Ellie Goulding, Florence and the Machine, Frank Turner and Alt J, to perform in Lancaster.

The Get It Loud project hope to be back in Lancaster soon.

During her Lancaster act Adele borrowed a stool from the John O’Gaunt pub across the road. In total she played four songs and was supporting Mr Hudson and the Library who had appeared on Later With Jools Holland that week.

A total of 187 people were there on the night.

One of the library staff asked Adele outside if she was coming to the show, Adele replied “Nah I’m playing.”

She entertained crowds with her performance of ‘Hometown Glory.’


At present Adele is dominating the charts with her album 25 and that famous song ‘Hello.’

She is currently set to go on tour across the UK in February and March.
