You can’t beat a bit of funk and soul as the soundtrack for a classy night out. The Live Lounge at Canvas has many big names gracing the stage in 2016; and we are delighted to announce that tickets for a gig by one of the biggest and most respected soul DJs in the UK – Craig Charles – go on sale today (Sunday February 7).

We are currently securing an interview with the popular BBC 6 radio host but, in the meantime, here’s a few nuggets of information to get you excited for the May 13 gig. Tickets are bound to sell out so go to the ‘Events’ section of now to secure yours.

Craig Charles is an all-rounder – actor, comedian, music lover – and he has really come into his own as a purveyor of the finest funk and soul as part of his BBC radio show. Each Saturday, from 6pm to 9pm, he entertains the nation with a seamless blend of old and new classics, chosen with passion and exuberant experience. The show also features live sessions and interviews – it is literally a masterclass in funk and soul music, past, present and future.

He’s not just a radio DJ, after all. More than five years as a resident at Bloomsbury in London has helped him hone his set to be all dancefloor fillers from start to finish.

Charles remains firmly in the public eye with his much-loved portrayal of Lloyd in Coronation Street and his turn in the classic sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf, which is currently filming new episodes, to the delight of its many fans.

He has also released a CD ‘Funk & Soul Classics’ – perfect for the car, the home, or to play as you get ready for your big night out at Canvas on May 13 – buy here:

Don’t miss Craig Charles ‘Up Close & Personal’ in the Canvas Live Lounge. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 12noon. Only 250 tickets are available and this is bound to sell out – so buy ASAP or miss out.
