Lionel Richie will play in Gloucester next year in a live show at Kingsholm Stadium.

International superstar Lionel Richie will return to the UK in 2016 to perform open air concerts in parts of the UK he's never visited before including Kingsholm Stadium, Gloucester on June 26th.

I had such a great time in the UK this year and I can't wait to visit new places and meet new people.

Performing at Glastonbury for the first time was such a thrill for me and given me an appetite to do new things in the UK.

I know these shows are going to be very special. It'll be the first time I'll have been to Gloucester and I can't wait.

Seen any elves lately?

Part of Bristol is getting shoppers in the Christmas spirit with its very own elf trail.

If you head to Bedminster, you might find yourself bumping into some elves. The community is taking it all very seriously - local schools have provided some of the little helpers and there's even an 'Elf and Safety' office.

The idea is children look for some of a hundred elves and claim rewards at candy check-in points if they spot them.

Obviously I think the kids will really jump on board and I hope their parents too. Anyone strolling through the area can just have it as an extra fun thing to do, you know - spot some elves.
