Writer and broadcaster Mark Ellen, the man who presented Live Aid to the world, will be talking about his colourful life in the music business at a special one-off show at The Grand, in Clitheroe, in October.

Ellen, who presented the Old Grey Whistle Test for the BBC for five years, said: “My new book – ‘Rock Stars Stole My Life’ – is hilariously indiscreet in places, so if you want to find out which rock star spent half-a-million pounds a week hiring a

private jet, or what it was like to interview Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Phil Spector or Lady Gaga, it would be great to see you at the Grand.”
