The legendary actor from Robot Wars and Red Dwarf brings his Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club show to the visitor attraction on September 9, 2021.
Craig has grounded himself as a funk and soul icon broadcasting on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music.
He has performed at numerous festivals including Glastonbury where he played to more than 10,000 people in 2016 and 2019.
Highway Child, a soul, funk and blues band who have headlined the three previous Rail Ale festivals, will be the support act.
Fans of Rail Ale Beer & Music Festival, which runs until September 11, have been snapping up tickets after last year’s event was cancelled amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
