After his sell out show in Oct 2017 it is our pleasure to announce the return of legendary actor, host, broadcaster and one of UK’s most beloved Funk and Soul DJs; Craig Charles.

From Robot Wars to Red Dwarf, Craig has now grounded himself as a Funk & Soul icon after 10 years of broadcasting on BBC 6 Music with their primetime Saturday night show. ‘When BBC 6 Music asked me to do a radio show I only had one condition, it has to be a funk & soul show otherwise I wasn’t interested’; and so the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show was born. Live every Saturday night with an assortment of classic gems and emerging artists, Craig has garnered global support as one of the UK’s foremost Funk and Soul commentators, DJs and promoters of new music.

The show has become a European benchmark for artists who want to connect directly with their fans. ‘Since its inception, I have been interested in all varieties of soul and funk music, without imposing any barriers and I am just as enthusiastic about fresh new talent as I am about the classic artists from the golden age of the 60s and 70s’.

Mr Charles and his trunk of funk DJs every weekend and can be found all across the UK, bringing with him a night of soul-hitting funk, ‘can you dig it’ attitude and dance-floor jivin’.
