Have you got Stars in your Eyes?

Who remembers watching Stars in Their Eyes? The talent contest that ran from 1990 - 2006 was far better than any of the over-hyped reality shows we have today, such as The X-Factor.

I tuned in regularly, and waited with anticipation as the contestants announced 'Tonight, Matthew, I'm going to be...' I always kept my fingers crossed for Cher, but two impersonations I recall enjoying the best was someone as Noddy Holder, singing 'Cum on Feel the Noize'.

If you miss Stars in Their Eyes, then you might enjoy a bit of nostalgic replay at the George Tavern on the 20th June. The George Tavern is a seven hundred year old Grade II listed pub and music venue, that you can find mentioned by great writers such as Charles Dickens, Samuel Pepys, and Geoffrey Chaucer.

From 7.30pm there will be a summer barbecue dance party in the garden, hosted by Tonight Matthew, a monthly 'boff up' of dedicated to imitating the inimitable lords and ladies of the music world. This month they're going to be The Clash. Rocking the house from 1976 - 1986, The Clash combined reggae, funk, and rock to create a new wave of British punk.

While you dance to the groove, you can also Thank Cluck for their succulent fried chicken. The menu includes chicken skins, Korean chicken wings, and chicken buns.

Fancy dressing for the part? Here are some ideas to get you started: quiffs, jail shirts, graffiti, slogans, zips, rockabilly rebels. Entry is 3, and tickets can be booked here.
