The Boomtown Rats will be performing at the Hawth on Tuesday, October 12

Last week we announced the Rats would be playing an intimate and live rehearsal gig at the Aura nightclub in the High Street, but because of building works they have had to move to the Hawth.

Tour manager Manager March Welch said: "Unfortunately the nightclub still had building works going on so we couldn't risk it not being ready in time. We were sad to leave that venue but we couldn't let anyone down in Crawley.

"We were determined to play in Crawley so we are now at the Hawth and we can't wait."
