Radio/TV star ‘Craig Charles’ set to perform at Swindon Meca on New Year’s Eve!

The nationally acclaimed Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club is heading to Swindon Meca on New Years Eve!
The BBC Radio 2 presenter and BBC 6 music host, actor and television personality is ready to transform MECA into a winter boogie land. He’ll be showing off his back catalogue of seriously tangy tunes ranging from modern mash ups and classic takes off the wildest Funk & Soul around, plus some surprises thrown in to keep you guessing.
Nothing will quash the carnival atmosphere that Charles successfully induces at every show! There’ll be some serious shuffling going down, so get ready for your body to throw some shapes that you didn’t think you had in you.
We have a mighty fine lineup for this very special New Year event and a Sound system to help deliver the tunes from the mighty “Trunk Of Funk!”
