A POPULAR folk festival isn’t the sort of place you would expect to see famous hellraiser Alice Cooper.

But the shock-rocker is set to headline the opening day of Fairport’s Cropredy Convention later this year.

It is expected to be Cooper’s only UK public appearance during the year.

Fairport’s Cropredy Convention takes place from Thursday, August 8, to Saturday, August 10.

Tickets will go on sale online from February 1 at http://www.fairportconvention.com
