Very special guests for the shows will be bananarama, Lulu and Kim Wilde. DJ Fat Tony will get the party started.

Originally formed as a trio in 1981, bananarama became a staple of the UK pop music scene in the 80s, steadily churning out hit after hit, with timeless classics including ‘Shy Boy’, ‘Cruel Summer’ and ‘Really say something’.

Their stamina would finally solidify when they released “Venus” which topped the US charts in 1986.

Lulu was also one of the four co-winners of the Eurovision Song Contest 1968 with the song ‘Boom Bang-A-Bang’, and later found success with his own eponymous BBC TV show; in addition to having a hit with the title theme of the 1974 classic Bond “The Man with the Golden Gun”. Lulu also had major chart success the previous year with her David Bowie cover. ‘The man who sold the world’.
