So you thought there was nothing happening at the end of November on the Isle of Wight? Well think again! Here's something really exciting to look forward to as the nights draw in and temperatures start to drop…
Organisers of the hugely popular Jack Up The Summer festival are putting on a couple of great feel-good party nights – one for 80's aficionados and one for lovers of 90's dance groove, both featuring top name chart acts to help transport you right back to your disco days.
The cheese factor has been ramped up for the 80's night on Saturday 23rd November as The Fizz, formerly known as Bucks Fizz take to the stage to perform a fabulous live set crammed full of their greatest hits.
Bucks Fizz became one of the UK's biggest pop acts after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981 with their famous skirt-ripping dance routine. Their song, 'Making Your Mind Up,' went to number one in nine countries, and was followed by hit singles including 'My Camera Never Lies' and 'Land of Make Believe.'
More than 30 years on, the original members of Bucks Fizz - Cheryl Baker and Jay Aston, are joined by founding member Mike Nolan and are still ripping skirts off to cheers from thousands of fans old and new.
Kicking the weekend off on the evening of Friday 22nd November, it's time to turn your boombox up and get on the floor. If you're looking for the perfect mix of dance songs from the 1990's the first of the two Jack Up Christmas party nights is the one for you.
Described as being one of the World's finest DJs and performers, Dario G, best known for their 1997 hit 'Sunchyme', which reached number 2 on the UK Singles Chart will be performing live along with British Eurodance band, Urban Cookie Collective remembered for their legendary 1993 hit single 'The Key, The Secret'.
Both nights will be held at Lower Hyde in Shanklin which boasts a large ballroom with a traditional wooden dance floor and stage with custom retro video disco and effects.
Add to the mix a bespoke photo booth, huge bar and over 1000 glow sticks to give away; the Jack Up Christmas nights offer a ready-made party, ideal for getting you in the mood for the festive season or for work, school or family reunions. A series of DJ sets with all your favourite 80's and 90's party classics and guilty pleasures will continue through until 1am.
Tickets are available at the absolute bargain price of just £15 per night. They come along with the promise that you will sing your heart out and dance your socks off! So get your fancy dress ready and prepare for not one, but two of the best parties of the year!
Doors open at 8pm.
