Three Night Festival at Upton Park Concerts

LEGENDARY Britpop band Space will be joined by eighties chart toppers Katrina and Dr & the Medics, as well as Spandau Ballet legend Martin Kemp, to headline a weekend of brilliant live music at Upton House next month.

The three-night festival with a guaranteed good times soundtrack aims to reinvent the tradition of picnic party concerts on the front lawn at the Grade II listed Georgian mansion with its 130-acres of parkland, grounds and formal gardens within the Holes Bay Nature Park.

It opens on 27 May with 'Legends Night', a hit-packed programme of top tributes to Queen, the Rolling Stones and Amy Winehouse; with 'Britpop Forever' on Saturday headlined by 90s hitmakers Space with support from Stone Roses, Stereophonics, Oasis, Blur and Pulp tributes; and closing with 'Ultimate 80s' in the company of Katrina (of the Waves fame), Dr & the Medics, Sonia and a Fleetwood Mac tribute, with DJ sets from Spandau Ballet's Martin Kemp - whose 'Back to the 80s' theme nights are a major draw in clubland - and the one and only Pat Sharp.

"We're thrilled to be bringing some of the best and biggest chart acts from the eighties and Britpop era to Upton House - the perfect way to kick off jubilee week," says festival director Ben Dyas.

"It's an amazing location with a stunning backdrop and beautiful grounds so whether you saw these legends the first time around or not, the invitation is there for party people to bring their pals and bring their picnics and get down on the front lawn."

Weekend highlights are sure to include Space revisiting their best-known hits 'Neighbourhood', 'Female of the Species' and 'Begin Again' alongside material from their latest album, last year's Music For Pleasure Music For Pain.
