Freddie set for Starr turn at town hall

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.”
