Gareth Gates (pictured) is returning to the district for a concert this summer.

The singer, who shot to fame on Pop Idol in 2002 and is currently appearing in ITV2’s The Big Reunion as one fifth of pop supergroup 5th Story, will play at Bingley Arts Centre on Thursday, July 17. It follows a gig he did there last year, when he treated fans to an acoustic set. The former Bradford Cathedral choirboy recently took part in the final series of Dancing on Ice Reunion, competing with previous winners of the ITV show.

He will be supported at his Bingley concert by Down Reno. For tickets call (01274) 567983 or visit bingleyartscentre.
