Hale Barns Carnival returns for its third year this July with a star-studded line-up and we’ve got a pair of tickets to giveaway.
Saturday evening’s concert shines a spotlight on disco and soul spotlight with live performances from The Real Thing and Odyssey.
Odyssey return to Hale Barns direct from the USA due to popular demand to play to their “favourite audience”. Odyssey played at the very first Hale Barns Carnival in 2017 – and they’re set to wow audiences for a second time with hits including Use It Up & Wear It Out, Native New Yorker, Inside Out, and the iconic disco anthem Going Back To My Roots.
Liverpool soul legends The Real Thing, featuring original band members Chris Amoo and Dave Smith, will perform their top selling hits including You To Me Are Everything, Can’t Get By Without You, and Feel The Force.
On Sunday evening former EastEnder Martin Kemp headlines with a Back To The 80s DJ set. In the 80s Kemp enjoyed worldwide fame with Spandau Ballet so expect to hear him play some of the band’s classics like Only When You Leave, Through the Barricades, True, and Gold, to entertain the crowd.
Other acts joining the 80s line-up include front man of boy band Brother Beyond, Nathan Moore, whose hits include The Harder I Try, produced by Stock, Aitken & Waterman, and Owen Paul – who shot to fame with the song My Favourite Waste of Time.
During the day the weekend promises St Ambrose Fields will be buzzing with more than 100 family-fun attractions including falconry displays, magic illusionists, traditional fun fair rides, and an artisan market.
Daytime entry to Hale Barns Carnival is free between 12pm and 5pm on both days. The evening concerts are ticketed, gates open at 6pm with the concerts starting at 7.30pm. All 100% of the ticket revenue will go towards community projects.
