X-Factor contestant Fil set to rock Reading

A former X-Factor contestant will be playing one of his biggest gigs so far at The Lions Club of Reading Firework Spectacular tomorrow.

Fil Henley, 30, known as Fil with an F on the ITV show, will be rocking out to a crowd of about 9,000 before the pyrotechnics begin at 7pm.

He will be performing with his band Wings of Pegasus from 6-6.30pm at the event held at Reading Town Football Club in Scours Lane.

At his X-Factor audition, the front man from Wavell Road played to a crowd of about 4,000 people.

"A matter of weeks later I am playing to over double that!" he said.

Gates open from 4.30-8.30pm and tickets cost £5 for adults and £4 for children.
