Organisers say that this will be a “bumper bill of nostalgic pop”.

Go West were formed in 1982 by Peter Cox and Richard Drummie who became one of the most successful songwriting duos of the decade. Their hits included ‘We Close Our Eyes’, ‘Call Me’ and ‘Don’t Look Down’. In 1990 their song ‘King of Wishful Thinking’ was used in the soundtrack for the hugely popular rom-com Pretty Woman.
