Sir Paul McCartney is to play a small warm-up gig in Frome a night before he headlines at Glastonbury.

Sir Paul McCartney will play a small warm-up show on Friday night ahead of his headlining performance at Glastonbury on Saturday.

The 80-year-old will become the oldest solo headliner in Glasto history when he takes to the Pyramid Stage this weekend, some 18 years after his last performance at Worthy Farm.

On Thursday it was announced that he will appear at the Cheese and Grain venue in nearby Frome for a special show from 5pm on Friday, with tickets costing £25.

In a post on Facebook announcing the gig, the venue wrote: "What an incredible opportunity to watch Paul warm up for his Glastonbury headlining performance this weekend. What an amazing treat... we are told this won't be his normal set either so should be an afternoon full of wonderful surprises."

Less than an hour later, the venue - capacity of 850 people - announced that the ticket allocation had sold out.
