The pop star promised a night of guaranteed entertainment, and certainly did not disappoint! With hits including Dear Darlin’, Heart Skips a Beat and Troublemaker, energetic Olly had the crowd up on their feet from the start.

Earlier in the day, both Olly and M.O. attended a music workshop with teenagers from Teenage Cancer Trust funded cancer units around the UK. Assisted by members of the Hall’s own Albert’s Band, they spent the afternoon playing instruments and writing songs together, before performing them in front of the band and members of staff.

Some of the workshop participants were even invited on-stage to introduce Olly, and take a few photos with the audience!

The show was supported by M.O., the UK R&B girl group who took 2016 by storm with their first Official Top 20 single Who Do You Think Of.
