BRITPOP heroes The Charlatans are to play an intimate Christmas show at The M Club in Crewe.

The Northwich five-piece have enjoyed much success during their 20-year history, including three number one albums and a host of top 20 singles.

Their sound defined the ‘Madchester’ scene of the 90s.

Perhaps best known for the singles The Only One I Know and North Country Boy, the band have a large following.

Having previously sold out venues such as the MEN Arena and Wembley Arena, local fans now have the opportunity to see them on a smaller stage.

The show is on Friday, December 18. Tickets, costing £22, are on sale at the box office on 0871 230 1101 or at
