One of the highlights of our cultural calendar here in the Potteries, the Festival in a Factory is back for its fifth year – with arguably its most eclectic line-up to date. Formerly known as the Stoke-on-Trent Literary Festival, the festivities at the Emma Bridgewater Factory will take place from June 7 to 9 this year.

KATIE PRICE has made a name in parliament as a campaigner against online trolling. But she can’t see what’s been going on under her nose — as her new man has been caught sending a raft of homophobic tweets. Brighton and Republic of Ireland footballer Shane Duffy branded a member of staff at one of his clubs a “gayboy” and referred to another as “f****t boy”. I revealed this month that Katie’s most recent ex, Kieran Hayler, had grown suspicious she was in a relationship with defender Shane, with her pink Range Rover being pictured on his driveway.

Each year, one album taps into the hearts and ears of the public on its way to topping the Billboard year-end album chart. Times have changed, though. In the 2010s, pop stars like Adele and Taylor Swift have dominated the charts, while in the 1950s and early 1960s, musical soundtracks and Broadway cast recordings tended to top the list.

Before 1992, the top album chart was “based on a survey of representative retail outlets that determined a ranking” and was “not a tally of actual sales.” Business Insider compiled all the best-selling albums and their respective notable singles, dating back to 1956, so you can see, and hear, which album was the soundtrack to your birth year (so long as you're between the ages of 1 and 61). Check out which album made it to the top each year: 2016: Drake — “Views” Young … [Read more...] about The biggest hit album of the year you were born
