Sometimes nice things do happen !
I had meant to buy tickets to go and see Craig Charles in Blackpool as usual I forgot but saw on facebook on Bootleg Social a competition to win a VIP entry ...
To cut a long story short - I WON !! Free entry in , free drinkies and the opportunity to see Craig at his best !
Craig Joseph Charles (born 11 July 1964) is a British actor, comedian, author, poet, television presenter and DJ. He is best known for playing Dave Lister in the science fiction sitcom Red Dwarf and Lloyd Mullaney in the soap opera Coronation Street, as a funk and soul DJ on BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio 2, and as the presenter of the gladiator-style game show Robot Wars from 1998 to 2004.
I have to say it's so nice to see someone who over the years has been in and out of the media to play a gig in a small local venue. While waiting outside as wanted to get some air Craig arrived just before 1am at the venue with his cousin, parked the car at the front , a few quick selfies with fans and in Craig went.
So if you get the chance and Craig comes back to Blackpool go and see him !
