A REGULAR showcase for folk music talent will give Chester-le-Street artistes a chance to shine.

St Cuthbert's Social Club, in Lumley Terrace, will hold an open event every Saturday, in which musicians, singers and comics can strut their stuff in front of an audience.

Singer and guitarist Shona will host the fun and accompany singers who don't play.

The event starts at 8.30pm every Saturday, and more information is available from the social club on 0191-388 3457
