TV presenter Matthew Wright is heading to Hartlepool to see his favourite band.

The Wright Stuff presenter is a big fan of prog rockers Here and Now and is making sure he catches their performance at The Studio on Saturday, December 12.

The gig, dubbed Lost in the Festive Woods, also includes a line up of bands from across the region, including Hartlepool’s Pixelate and Silver Trees.

Gig promoter Brian Barnes said: “When I got the guestlist from Here and Now, Matthew Wright’s name was on it.

“I asked the bassist and he said he’s a friend of theirs and a big fan and he was coming along.

“I know he’s really into that genre of music.”

He added: “It’s a good sign that people are willing to travel for the gig and to see the band. They’ve done some others recently but this is the first one he’s been able to make it along to because of his schedule.”

The gig runs from 8pm to 3am. Tickets cost £10 in advance or £13 on the door. Book at www.seetickets.com
