A massive party with 1980's music will be held in Banbury to raise money for Katharine House Hospice (KHH).

Following the success of the Katharine House midnight walk which had an 80's theme, 80's tribute band Sledgehammer is throwing a big party on September 10 at the Mill Arts Centre - with 50 per cent of the profits from the event will go to the KHH.

Organisers described the event as three hours of non stop 80’s anthems and the band are encouraging everyone to come in 80’s dress and have some fun.

"Sledgehammer are not your usual 80’s band," said the organisers.

    "They regularly pack out The Dog & Gun and other venues across the county and come with a massive light show, including lights in their shoes and their guitars! They cover all the rock and pop hits from the awesome decade."

    Russ Fray, lead singer of the band, said: “We love playing in Banbury. It has such a vibrant music scene. Everyone is always dancing on the first song and going crazy for the music, so we have taken the decision to hire out the Mill Arts Centre and it’s going to be the party of the year.

    "We have added even more 80’s anthems to our set. With TV shows like ‘Stranger Things’, it really is great to see that the best decade ever is so popular right now, but we don’t think it ever went away!”
