Heather Small, the voice of M People, who had hits such as Moving On Up, One Night in Heaven and Search For The Hero, will bring the curtain down on the eight-day event on Saturday, July 12.

Heather’s career has spanned over two decades, selling millions of records worldwide and winning an array of awards.

She recently reunited with M People for ‘The 20th Year Anniversary Greatest Hits Tour’ across the UK, and was also a contestant on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Carnival chairman Jason Thomson said: “It has been a real scoop for us to get Heather to appear at the carnival, and we know she will be a great hit with the community for a final party to remember.

“The fact she is at the V Festival this year shows we are mixing with the big national events in our small market town carnival.”

Further support acts will be released in the coming weeks.

Visit 8dayweekend.co.uk to sign up for carnival updates and buy tickets to this and other events shortly. The ‘8-day Weekend’ runs from July 4-12 on the Common and throughout the town.
