The Doctor

Led by charismatic front man Clive Jackson, better known as The Doctor, the band scored a number one hit in 1986 with Spirit in the Sky.

It’s hoped that young people from the creative summer school workshops at Tuned In! will play a major part in the finale and perform on stage as one of the hit maker’s warm up acts.

Councillor Karen King, Deputy Leader of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said: “What an opportunity!

“Not everyone gets to spend the summer learning film making, acting, music and prop making and then having the chance to show off those new skills warming up the crowd for a genuine pop group.

“I’m sure they have a lot of fun at the summer workshops and I hope I can make the show to see them in action.”
