The Engine Shed, which first opened in September 2006 has a capacity for around 1,500 people and has had a number of big names perform there throughout its ten years.

Hayley Jane Wilkinson, Student Union President, said: “Following the sold out shows with Russell Howard, we’re excited to announce another big name for these landmark anniversary events.

“Newton Faulkner has been one of our favourite act’s who’s play here in the last few years, and sells out the venue every time so it’s great to have him back for an exclusive show.”
