Carol Decker of t’pau, Toyah Willcox, Johnny Hates Jazz and Nik Kershaw all wow at Newark Festival in the castle grounds
The eighties were reborn against the fantastic backdrop of Newark Castle last night.
The castle rocked and rolled to some of the best entertainers of the era.
Hundreds enjoyed the relaxed and intimate affair as the hits were pelted out from the stage.
Carol Decker of t’pau fame kicked off a great night with the crowd dispensing with their picnic chairs and on their feet.
Then followed Toyah Willcox whose energy and zest for life hasn’t diminished one iota.
By now the booze was flowing and the good natured event was in full swing.
The music kept on coming with some classic performances from Johnny Hates Jazz.
Headline act Nik Kershaw brought the show to a close with an outstanding performance that cements his position as an eighties icon.
The crowds were on their feet throughout; arms in the air, singing along, on what was a spectacular night for music.
This year’s Newark Festival finishes today with the family fun day and Brass Band Explosion, a fitting end to a weekend that was not to be missed and another triumph for festival organisers, sponsors and supporters.
