Lead singer Joe Flynn said: “This Feeling have been on our radar for a while, so to be asked to play our hometown of Preston and showcase our music alongside some other incredible local artists is a huge honour.

“It’s also fantastic that the UK’s biggest rock n’ roll club has chosen to put on this night in Preston. There’s a huge amount of amazing talent in our City and it’s important to preserve and protect our independent music scene and keep live music accessible and affordable for Lancashire residents.”

The This Feeling club night takes over The Dark Room at Roper Hall on Thursday 25 October and is followed by an indie club night.
