Tom Jones

Just learned, from regular guest Stewart Collins (who's the artistic director) that this year's headliner for the Henley Festival is the legendary Tom Jones. He's only doing three UK gigs over the summer and Henley is one of them!


He's one of those marvellous entertainers who's renowned for his famous recordings - but you really have to see him live to truly understand his appeal. I interviewed him first way back when I was a reporter for ATV in the Midlands. He was playing at Birmingham, so I decided to go along and witness a liver performance, even though I wasn't much of a fan of his music. He was utterly fantastic. And the girls literally did throw their knickers at him.
