A singer who has sold millions of records across the globe will perform on a Weston stage next month.

Acclaimed performer Barbara Dickson will delve deep into her back catalogue at The Playhouse, in High Street, on March 9 at 7.30pm, and the Mercury has free tickets to give away.

Dickson will take to the stage with a live band and promises to perform a wide range of tunes, varying from her folk roots to some of her more well-known hits.

The Scottish-born singer-songwriter has released dozens of high-selling records throughout her 50-year career, reaching the UK album chart top-40 on 15 occasions.

The 71-year-old also has four top-20 singles under her belt, and is best known for songs like The Caravan Song, Another Suitcase In Another Hall and Answer Me.

Her 1984 number-one single, I Know Him So Well, is also certain to be given an outing at The Playhouse – where there is sure to be a great atmosphere as the crowd enjoys Dickson’s world-class vocals.

Dickson has also enjoyed a long and fruitful career on the theatre stage, twice scooping a coveted Olivier Award for her roles in musicals Spend, Spend, Spend and Blood Brothers respectively.

Tickets, priced £29.50, are available on 01934 645544 or online at
