THEY made history by becoming the first UK country act to score a number one album two years ago.

Now the Hampshire twins that make up Ward Thomas are setting themselves a challenge right now - by attempting to play 15 cities in just three days.

This lunchtime they plan to perform in Southampton on a schedule that started at 9am in Guildford.

After asking fans to choose the venues through social media it has been revealed that they will perform at 12.50pm at Southampton's Art House Cafe ( postcode SO14 7DW).

Today's schedule includes six venues:

9.00 Guilford - Canopy Coffee (GU1 4NE)

10.50 Basingstoke - HMV (RG21 7BE)

12.50 Southampton - The Art House Cafe (SO14 7DW)

16.00 Bath - BA1 2QU

17.30 Bristol - Boston Tea Party

19.50 Oxford - FREVD (OX2 6AH)

For non-identical twins Lizzy and Catherine, this will be a warm up for their major tour which comes to Southampton's O2 Guildhall on April 4.

It is all in support of their new album 'Restless Minds' - released a week ago.

Recently featured on BBC Radio 1’s ‘Beyond Nashville’ documentary, Catherine and Lizzy have tackled issues close to their hearts on ‘Restless Minds’, including the women’s movement, social media and mental health.

The remaining performances are:
