Festivals – Festival Jack Up The 80’s is renowned for being one big Summer party & that’s the true essence of what people love about it. Now there’s fabulous news for party-goers as this hugely popular event is broadening its appeal to allow for a richer variety of music! Returning as ‘Jack Up The Summer’ in its traditional slot this August, this much loved family friendly throwback festival will continue to celebrate the upbeat, hand-clapping music of yesteryear, centred around party hits and feel-good music from the 80’s & 90’s. Audiences can enjoy a wider variety of acts however the 80’s spirit remains very much at the heart of Jack Up The Summer. As such, the 2019 edition of the event guarantees 100% 80’s chart acts on one of the two days! The first wave of artists for Jack Up The Summer which takes place over the weekend of 10 & 11 August continue to be revealed in the coming weeks. Already confirmed are Heaven 17 & Aswad for Saturday 10th and East 17 & 911 for Sunday 11th August. A **strictly limited** number of Early Bird tickets are currently on sale, but hurry! When they’re gone they’re gone!
Since 1826 Cowes Week has played a key part in the British sporting summer calendar and is one of the UK’s longest running and most successful sporting events. It now stages up to 40 daily races for around 1,000 boats and is the largest sailing regatta of its kind in the world. One of the best locations to watch the starts ashore each morning is undoubtedly the area between the Castle of the Royal Yacht Squadron and the cannons – as long as you don’t mind the loud bangs! Racing is scheduled to start at 10 am every day. Phone: 01983 295744 (General Enquiries) Website: http://www.lendycowesweek.co.uk Email: email@example.com
