Eighties icon Toyah and boy band East 17 to headline at Falmouth
9:00am Friday 11th July 2014 in News
EIGHTIES’ icon Toyah Wilcox and nineties' boy-band East 17 will be headlining the evening entertainment during Falmouth Week this summer.
It is the 25th anniversary of shoreside activity during the regatta week and organisers have pulled out all the stops to make it an event to remember.
East 17 will be top of the bill for the 80s/90s night and joining them will be Toyah and Livin’ Joy, the Italian dance duo who had hits in the late 90s.
Toyah said: “I am looking forward to being in Falmouth on August 15 to celebrate Falmouth Week with everyone. I will be singing my hits and more with the crowd. As it will be August we will all be in holiday mood. It’s been a while since I have visited Cornwall and Falmouth but I intend to explore as much |as I can.”
The rest of the week sees a real variety of music and entertainment styles with Falmouth Week 2014 kicking off as usual with the marching carnival on August 9 which will be followed by a free party night in the marquee on Events Square with music from Falmouth Soul Sensations.
The Wurzels are back on the Sunday night for their traditional slot and Monday sees Fleetwood Mac tribute Fleetwood Bac’s show which has been endorsed by Mick Fleetwood himself.
Audiences will step back in time to the 1940s on Tuesday night when Company B make a welcome return, supported by the Land Girls and it’ll be time to rock on Wednesday when Bon Giovi host the tribute night, performing the hits of American rockers Bon Jovi, only hours after the Red Arrows are due to have given their second display in Falmouth this year.
Rudi’s Message are back for the Ska night on the Thursday and the penultimate night of Falmouth Week will see the pirate/Caribbean party with the ten-piece hi-energy band Joey the Lips performing songs by the likes of Beyonce and Tina Turner.
The final night will be taken over by Kernow King with his new show Splann which features Budock’s Colin Leggo and St Agnes maid Anna Keirle.
Tickets are available now from Seetickets.com with the Events Square box office opening on July 25.
