It will be a return to the area for The South singer Alison Wheeler as the group will be visiting Northampton as part of a UK tour next week.

The South, who were formed after the 90s band The Beautiful South split, are performing at The Roadmender in Lady’s Lane on Friday, December 5.

Alison is originally from Daventry and went to William Parker School.

She will be appearing alongside her band mates for the Sweet Refrains tour.

The band will be performing material from their debut album called Sweet Refrains while also performing many of The Beautiful South’s most famous hits including Rotterdam, Don’t Marry Her and Have A Little Time.

On disbanding in 2007, members Dave Hemingway and Alison Wheeler went on to form The South alongside Damon Butcher, Tony Robertson and Gaz Birtles, who have been with the band since the very beginning.

The tour comes after the summer was spent performing at numerous festivals throughout the UK.

Tickets for the show cost £20 and can be booked by visiting www.theroadmender.com.
