The Wanted

No 1 boyband, The Wanted have announced their first ever UK Arena Tour for spring 2012.

The five piece group that became one of the biggest breakthrough acts of 2010 will be playing 11 arenas across the country, with a show at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield.

The Wanted boys burst into our lives and the charts last summer, with their incredible 2011 BRIT nominated debut single, All Time Low, storming straight into the number one spot. Followed by number two hit Heart Vacancy, they have quickly built up a huge fan base. Their self-titled debut album raced into the top five, and they have had over an incredible 30 million plays of their videos on YouTube.

In March the boys were given the honour of releasing the official Comic Relief single for Red Nose Day. The single Gold Forever became their third top five single.

A Million Blooms

A carpet of white will await visitors to Brodsworth Hall & Garden this February half term, as the fruits of several years’ back-breaking planting of snowdrop bulbs finally take the number of flowers over one million – at just the right time.

For the last few years, the great British weather has played havoc with the snowdrops which English Heritage has hoped would be in full bloom for the February half term holidays (11-19 February), when the site is open every day. However, this year’s conditions have been ideal, with the best displays expected for a two week period around the half term break.

WHERE:Brodsworth Hall Gardens

WHEN: until Sunday February 19

HOW MUCH: £5.50, £5 concessions, £3.30 children (Free for English Heritage members
