A FORMER Neighbours heartthrob from Australia, a Britain’s Got Talent finalist from Kendal and the best local live music talent will combine for a charity weekend in Lancaster.

The double bill of events starts with the Grand Rock Out this Friday night (July 20) – the annual live entertainment extravaganza held at the Grand Theatre in Lancaster in aid of the New Spaces Appeal to raise money to improve the building.

Artists appearing at the Grand Rock Out include talented Morecambe pop band Idol Minds, who recently supported McFly at the Guild Hall in Preston and have played The Cavern Club in Liverpool.

Electro rockers The Feud are also on the bill. Based in the Lancaster area, The Feud shot to prominence earlier this year when their superb single It Ain’t Right was played every day for a week on Radio 1.

The line up is completed by Molly Warburton, Gotme and Whiskey Johnson.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5.

Then on Saturday night (July 21), another live entertainment night called Up Close and Personal will be held in association with Rock FM in aid of Cash for kids, helping local young children.

Britain’s Got Talent finalists Be Minor, Kaos Theory, Reconnected and Kendal’s own dancing telecommunications engineer, Steven Hall, will be on the bill.

So will Sam Clark, the Australian singer and musician who is most famous for playing Ringo Brown in Neighbours.

Teenage Bolton-le-Sands singer Amy-Jo Clough and boy band Forbidden Juice are also on the bill.

Tickets to Up Close and Personal cost £10 for adults and and £5 for children.

Bookings for both of this weekend’s events can be made by calling 01524 64695, by calling into the Grand Theatre in person or online at
