FAMOUS comedian Freddie Starr has been booked to perform at the town hall next year.
The English comic is due to perform in Hawick as part of a comeback tour after suffering a heart attack last year. And with the 68-year-old also due to be a contestant on the upcoming ITV jungle show I’m a Celebrity..Get Me Out of Here!, the gig has been hailed an exciting event for the town.
Promoter Bill Lothian, of Wigwam Concert Promotions, said: “I’m from Hawick originally and have persuaded Freddie to grace the town hall stage on April 18. It’s a real coup for Hawick and I hope people support it.”
