Singer Heather Small will be celebrating a significant anniversary with her latest tour coming to Northampton.

The M People star appears at the Royal & Derngate on Friday February 26.

Heather said: “I love to do live work and I signed my first record deal when I was 21.

“I’ll be 51 this year so it will be a celebration of that.

“It will be a lot of the old songs, the songs that I really like to perform live.”

However for someone who has appeared on some of the world’s biggest stages, she’s suffers with a touch of stage fright.

Heather added: “I still actually get nervous before I appear on stage.

“Even now, although as soon as I get on stage, I am better.

“I remind myself that performing in front of the audience is the thing I most love to do and the end feeling is worth all of the nerves.

“It was an honour that Proud was chosen to be the anthem of the Olympics even though I did get abuse in the street from people after the announcement. But it’s great thing for me to have been involved in.”

Tickets are from £29. To book call 01604 624811 or alternatively visit www.royalandderngate.co.uk.
