The Proclaimers set to visit Parr Hall


THERE will be no need to walk 500 miles to see The Proclaimers this year as they’ll be returning to Warrington Parr Hall in August with tickets going on sale this Friday (March 8).

Everyone’s favourite Scottish twins will be calling at Warrington on Sunday, August 4 and tickets go on sale this Friday.

It has been 32 years since folk duo Craig and Charlie Reid, otherwise known as The Proclaimers, emerged; since then, their enduring appeal across generations has carved a niche where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide.

The emotional honesty, political fire, wit and singalong raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened has entertained fans around the world.

The pair have even inspired a musical, the play and film Sunshine on Leith.

The musical had its fourth UK run from April to June last year, with its biggest production to date by West Yorkshire Playhouse.

Last year also marked the 30th anniversary since the release of the Sunshine on Leith album and in August saw The Proclaimers add to their magnificent songbook with the release of their 11th studio album Angry Cyclist.

Following their sell-out tour across the UK last year, The Proclaimers will be back on the road this year with appearances in Reykjavik and Singapore, before touring New Zealand and Australia, followed by several festivals throughout the summer.

Tickets priced £34.50/£32.50 go on sale this Friday (March 8) at 9am; visit parrhall.culturewarrington.org or call Box Office on 01925 442345.
