Organisers at the ফোরাম are delighted to have secured One Direction for the sold-out afternoon.
“We’re told that One Direction are only doing a couple of pre-X Factor Tour shows, and we’re honoured that they’ve chosen the ফোরাম Hertfordshire,” ব্যক্ত director of marketing Rebecca Hobbs.
“This has been our fastest selling event to date, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring such an exclusive performance to the community.”
