Collabro add second Carlisle concert date

Demand to see Cumbria’s own television talent show star Matthew Pagan perform his homecoming gig has been so great that his group Collabro have added an extra date.

The Britain’s Got Talent winners were set to kick off their UK tour at The Sands Centre, in Carlisle, on January 27.

However, city boy Pagan and his operatic band members have this morning revealed that an extra date has been added.

The boys will now start their tour a day earlier, performing at the venue on Monday, January 26 as well.

The five-piece musical theatre group will be supported by the BGT runner-up and opera singer Lucy Kay.

Tickets for Collabro’s extra date are priced at £38.50, £27.50 and £19.50 plus a booking fee and are on sale tomorrow at 10am.

They will be available from The Sands Centre Box Office on 01228 633766 or online at

Meanwhile, Clannad will perform their atmospheric and often haunting sounds at the Sands Centre later this year.

The Irish family group, responsible for tunes such as Theme From Harry’s Game, In A Lifetime, I Will Find You and the soundtrack to the TV series Robin Of Sherwood, will take to the stage on October 24.

The band formed in 1970 and over the years, their music has been described as folk and folk rock, traditional Irish, Celtic and new-age.

The band has sold more than 15 million records during a career stretching over 40 years.

They took a break from writing and performing in 2000 but returned to the stage for a UK tour in 2008. They released their first studio album in 15 years – titled Nadur – last September and they perform in Carlisle later this year as part of their first major UK tour since 2008.

Tickets priced £28.50 plus a booking fee are on sale from tomorrow at 9am.
