There is also a oneoff charity concert, to raise money for Merlin's Magic Wand, in the chapel at Alton Towers, at 8pm on September 28. Tickets cost Pounds 10 and are available from the Londis shop in Alton. DANIEL KEEN FOLK A GREAT week ahead as the best up-andcoming young folk acts perform at The Potteries Folk Club. It opens with a great young talent, Sunjay Brayne, performing tonight at The White Star in Stoke (01782 813401). On Wednesday night Lucy Ward, with support from David Gibb and Elly Lucas, will perform at The Biddulph Arms (01782 514896). ERIC COX THEATRE ONE of Europe's largest open air Shakespeare festivals has just announced their 2014 production. Stafford Festival Shakespeare will stage the comedy As You Like It in the grounds of the town's castle. The play is considered by many to be Shakespeare's finest musical comedy. This year saw the highest attendance to date, with 11,000 people enjoying A Midsummer Night's Dream. DANIELLE BOURNE CHART CHOICE A TALENTED young lady arrived at the Total Access studios this week, clutching a bag of hot chips and gravy, like a proper Northern Lass. She became a national TV star when she auditioned, with just her guitar in hand, on The X Factor stage. She is of course the excellent Lucy Spraggan. Lucy joined me to talk about her new single - which is actually a double A side - including Last Night, which she performed on the X Factor, and Mountains. It's out on September 20 and both are cracking songs from a really talented young lady.
Lucy is also going to be touring next year and I'm sure she will be excellent live, so grab your tickets now.
