RADIO 2 DJ and television presenter Jo Whiley is set to host an evening of 90s Anthems in Bournemouth.

The event is being held at the Halo nightclub on Friday, February 25.

It has been organised by businessman Giles Cooper who owns the venue Canvas at the Triangle.

And in a thank you for their work and dedication during the pandemic, NHS staff will be able buy tickets at half price.

Giles said: "Jo is a big name and this promises to brilliant evening of 90s nostalgia. We are really delighted to be hosting her.

"We are holding the event at Halo because it has a capacity of 1,000 whereas at Canvas it's around 400."

He added: "We really thought it would nice to say thank you to NHS staff for everything they have done at the same time."

The Jo Whiley evening, part of her 2022 UK Tour, is just one of a number of big name dates being organised Canvas, including Martin Kemp, Trevor Nelson and Arrested Development.

"We have six months of great entertainment lined up and all the events will be at 50 per cent discount to NHS workers," said Giles.
