Local Brit award pop star celebrates one of his smallest sell-out shows

The singer, real name Rory Graham, whose hits include Human and Giant, played the iconic, award-winning  independent venue as part of a national campaign to help revive grassroots music venues.

He lives locally, near Heathfield, and had played The Forum, a former public toilet on the Common, before he became a big star, although on that occasion it was not a full house.

Monday’s gig was sold out in minutes when tickets went on sale last month, and the star was rewarded with a trophy from the music venue.

The Forum tweeted: “Brit awards, Shmit awards. All things like that are just put to shame when you win the ‘Sold Out show at The Forum’ trophy.

“Well done to @RagNBoneMan for finally reaching his peak!

“Ladies, gents and everything in between… Rag N Bone Man is a sell-out.”
