JOHN Thomson will be playing an exclusive Northern Soul DJ set this Friday, with Hitchin soul and indie outfit Winchester Collective also getting behind the decks.

The actor, comedian and DJ, best known for his roles in The Fast Show and Cold Feet, will be appearing at Chic Bar in Hitchin.

Jamie Costello, from Chic, said: “John Thomson is a die hard Soul fan, so naturally we’re looking forward to this huge personality behind our turntables.

It’s no secret that the Winchester Collective know how to throw a good party, so Friday night has all the elements for another spectacular party at Chic.”

Entry is free before 10pm and £5 after.
