Tom Walker Nominated for Brit Award
In the summer of 2018, singer Tom Walker graced the Stage of Norfolk’s Thetford High Lodge as a Support Act for The Script. Who would have thought that just eight months later, the talented singer-songwriter would be nominated for not one, but two Brit Awards this year. Tom joins UK pop sensations Anne-Marie and Dua Lipa to name just two fellow nominees. The BRIT Awards 2019 take place Wednesday 20 February at The O2 Arena, London, broadcast exclusively on ITV and hosted by Jack Whitehall.
Tom Walker’s Norfolk performance at Thetford was a much larger affair than his previous visit to Norwich, playing the more intimate Norwich Arts Centre although Tom’s amazing voice filled the amazing woodland venue beautifully. He performed a selection of songs from including ‘Be Myself‘, ‘Fly Away With Me’ left ‘Leave a Light On’ as his finale. After playing to the early crowd at the Forest Live Concert, Tom posted on his Facebook Page to all of those who had supported him, writing;
Massive thanks to The Script for having me support them in Thetford last night and to all you lot for coming down early to say hey ??
