Tom GrennanTom GrennanCustomers at Marlborough CD and vinyl shop Sound Knowledge have the chance to be part of a world record attempt next month.

On Wednesday, July 11 hotly-tipped singer-songwriter Tom Grennan will be playing ten gigs in 12 hours in a bid to secure a Guinness World Record.

Commencing in Bolton and finishing in Marlborough, Tom wants to beat the record for the most concerts played in 12 hours.

He will play a 15-minute set in each town and needs to sell at least 10 tickets for each concert to qualify for the record.

Starting in Bolton, the musician will travel to Knutsford, Market Drayton, Bridgnorth, Pershore, Monmouth, Brockworth near Gloucester, Faringdon, and Chipping Sodbury near Bristol, finishing in Marlborough.

He will play a set at Café Thirty8 at 7pm before heading to neighbouring Sound Knowledge to sign copies of his album – and maybe celebrate setting a new world record.

To qualify for a ticket to the gig, customers must pre-order a copy of Lighting Matches from Sound Knowledge.

He is touring in support of his debut album, Lighting Matches, which is out on July 6.

Sound Knowledge owner Roger Mortimer said: "A distinctive voice both vocally and lyrically, the indie-soul sensation is set to be one of the breakthrough stars of this year with appearance on Radio 1's Live Lounge and BBC Two's Later... with Jools Holland already under his belt, as well as collaborations with Chase & Status and grime MC Bugzy Malone.

"The Bedford singer is a real rising star and you're unlikely to get many more opportunities to catch him in an intimate setting like this."
