Coronation Street star, Colson Smith, is hosting an event to raise funds for his home town cricket club.

Colson, who stars as Craig Tinker in Coronation Street, said: “It’d be great to see some faces from the Castleford community at the event.”

The event involves live music from Take That tribute band ‘Shine: the Take That experience’ at Savile Park cricket grounds, along with a hogroast, bar and a DJ set.

The band performed at the ground last year. The event will take place on Saturday, July 13 from 8pm onwards. A homegrown soap star is helping to organise a special charity concert for Castleford Cricket Club.
