Reliably informed

For the longest time, Craig Charles, to me, was three things: the guy from Red Dwarf, the presenter of Robot Wars and some newbie in Coronation Street. Then one day came the revelation that he was a lover of all things funk and soul and that he had his own specially dedicated show on 6 Music. Still going strong on Saturday nights with his collection of new and classic funk and soul tunes, his DJ sets have also become a legendary sight to behold, pulling in crowds from all corners of society.

This weekend, Charles is bringing his acclaimed trunk of funk to the Stepehenson Boiler Shop for one of their traditional Bank Holiday knees-ups, meaning that it’s time to get down and dirty with some seriously slap bass, luscious diva vocals, infectious call and return routines and, of course, some seriously phat brass. With some special guests also lined up for the night, it’s set to be another memorable Bank Holiday Sunday down at the Boiler Shop.

The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show comes to the Stephenson Boiler Shop, Newcastle on Sunday 30th August.
