Following on from his work as a solo multi-media artist, Francis will be joined by his friends Dorie Jackson and Pete Jones, for a one-off special acoustic performance of his double album The Gully Flats Boys.

A spokesman said: “The evening promises to be a unique, intimate night with stories, a little irreverent humour and some achingly beautiful music; don’t miss this chance to experience Francis Dunnery, in all his glory.”

Francis first took to the stage in the 80s with rock band It Bites, known for their 1986 single Calling All The Heroes.
