Dust off your shoulder pads for a nostalgic night of music featuring Jason Donovan, Chesney Hawkes and Scott Mills.

80s Mix Tape, now in its third year, will be transporting us back to the era where leggings were a staple, and the music was epic.

Jason Donovan broke many hearts in the 80s as boy-next-door Scott Robinson in Neighbours, before going on to top the charts alongside co-star Kylie Minogue with Especially for You. His career as popstar and actor went from stellar, with highlights including 1989 album Ten Good Reasons multiple productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in the West End.

Chesney Hawkes rose to fame with massive number one hit The One and Only and went on to have a varied career as popstar, musical theatre actor and television personality.

DJ Scott Mills has been ruling the BBC Radio 1 and 2 airwaves since 1998, after starting his career in the 80s aged just 16. He’ll take the party up a notch as he takes to the decks performing a banging 90s DJ set.

Joining them we also have The 80s Reunion, this four piece tribute act authentically recreate the look and sound of the 1980s. With awesome dancers and a live band they will recreate some of the very best chart-topping hits from 80s icons such as Duran Duran, The Human League, Madonna, Eurythmics and more.

Local Derby band Cassette Roulette are a 5-piece band made up of full-time professional musicians and two of the best female singers around. They’ve entertained crowds at hundreds of events across the UK, playing the perfect mix of old favourites and modern classics to keep the dance-floor full, all killer no filler!

Round up your friends and family, and  get your hair curlers ready for more 80s magic in 2024 in the beautiful surroundings of Darley Park.
