FRANK Turner, the saviour of folk-punk and Danny Boyle’s beloved warm-up choice for the London Olympics’ opening ceremony, is in concert in Yeovil in September.

Tickets for the show at Westlands on Saturday, September 20 cost £24.50 each including booking fee.

Turner, who will be flanked by The Sleeping Souls, his band of merry musical men, has long had a deeply loyal following for his honest, passionate folk-punk.
