Back to the 80’s

A generation of mullets, brightly coloured aerobics / fitness wear… yes I am being stereotypical, however what is it about this era that fascinates everyone?

For many this was the era of voguish shoulderpads, voluminous hairstyles and smouldering stares, all heralding a daring new streak of ostentation.

For the fans, it was a gift of dress-up glamour that brought escape from the humdrum. Embracing the rapid rise of a new electronic era, opening a new chapter into music.

And of course, a lot of today’s music is ‘eighties-inspired’ as you can hear the synthetic beat applied to a lot of the current releases in the charts.

I used to manage ‘Back to the 80’s’ Brighton’s biggest Eighties event every Tuesday night in Brighton from 2011 – 2013 and this drew in crowds of people that lived in the era as well as students wanted to step into the nostalgic past and imagine what it was like.

Well the good news, is the Eighties will be returning to The Talbot Inn, Cuckfield on Friday 13th July 2018.

Tickets are £10 with prizes up for grabs for the most ‘Outrageous’ fancy dress. These can be purchased from the bar, by email: info@thetalbotcuckfield.co.uk or by calling: 01444 455 898

I look forward to seeing you then for another great night. Don’t forget you can follow our specialist ‘Back to the 80’s’ Facebook page for details on more events like this coming soon: https://www.facebook.com/80sNightBrighton/

What was your fondest 80’s moment? We would love to hear about it…

 

A new residency

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since my last post, however things have been might busy at A.C.Knell Entertainment HQ.

I am excited to announce I will be starting another residency at newly opened Penny’s in Burgess Hill. On the site where former Mooch @ 76 used to be (76 Church Walk, Burgess Hill, West Sussex, RH15 9AS), Penny’s was opened by a friend of mine on Saturday 12th July 2014.

Penny's Burgess Hill

General Manager Naomi Penny opened the bar after tragically losing both her mum and dad to cancer. The opening night saw a massive £500 raised for St Peter & St James Hospice; a charity very close to Naomi’s heart.

Penny’s are offering something very unique to Burgess Hill with a wide selection of cocktails, great food (got to try the cakes) and a great selection of live music.

As well as providing our support with their marketing, I will be starting this Friday (every Friday throughout August) playing a selection of chart & dance anthems from 9PM to get you set for the weekend. I hope you can join me there this Friday or any other Friday in the summer.

Karaoke will also be on the first Thursday of every month. For more details about all the events held at Penny’s be sure to check out their Facebook page.
