X Factor champion James Arthur performed at Victoria Park in the summer - five months before he shot to fame on the hit ITV talent show.

The 24-year-old from Saltburn was crowned X Factor winner after beating off competition from Jahmene Douglas in front of a 10,000 crowd and millions of television viewers on Sunday evening. 

But before he captured the hearts of the nation, Arthur was wowing crowds at The Vic when he was part of the playlist for the annual Pitch Invasion festival in July. 

The James Arthur Band played a twenty-minute set on the stage at Pools on Sunday 13th July, on the same bill as our PA Announcer Phil Dunn and his band The Passion Killers.
