Lethal Bizzle to play in Falmouth

Grime star Lethal Bizzle will be performing at University College Falmouth’s (UCF) Stannary in November as part of his ‘Back to Bizznizz’ tour.

Bizzle (real name Maxwell Ansah) will be playing the Stannary, one of Cornwall’s biggest music venues, on 27th November. He was due to support punk band Gallows on the Falmouth leg of their tour, but had to pull out due to a video shoot which ran over-schedule.

“We knew that a lots of people had been disappointed when Bizzle was a no-show on the Gallows date at Princess Pavilion last month, so we have been talking to his agent ever since about getting him a date in Cornwall,” said Katy Thomas from SW1 Productions, who are promoting the event.

‘The Hook Up’ are presenting the tour, which will also feature music, film, fashion, technology and more, and is said to “reflect what is happening” in the UK scene at present.

Lethal Bizzle came to prominence in 2003 when his single, ‘Pow! (Forward Riddim)’ was banned from UK clubs for supposedly inciting riots. He is part of the East London ‘grime’ scene responsible for the careers of Dizzee Rascal and Kano, and has released two albums to critical acclaim.

Tickets are £11 and available at
www.seetickets.com, or £10 for students, available from Woodlane and Tremough FXU offices. The show is strictly over 18s.

Hi Laura

You clearly understand the necessities of the news genre - applying the pyramid structure effectively and demonstrating both a good use (and sourcing) of quotes and a strong intro.

You've developed the story well from a range of research sources - and not lost sight of the audience by keeping the language and story fresh and accessble.

Good work
