Hale Barns Carnival returns this summer with a spectacular weekend filled with live music, entertainment, family fun, fairground attractions, fantastic food and two all-star evening concerts.
And organisers are delighted to announce their biggest headliners to date, with multi-million selling 70s legend Graham Gouldman of 10CC, R&B superstar Alexander O’Neal and TV’s Craig Charles all performing over the fun-filled weekend.
On Saturday 22 July, 10cc lead member; Graham Gouldman will perform an exclusive set for Hale Barns Carnival featuring all the bands biggest hits including The Things You Do For Love, Dreadlock Holiday, Rubber Bullets, I’m Not in Love and many more.
The band, originally formed in Stockport in 1972 by singer, songwriter and bassist Graham Gouldman, and went on to enjoy international acclaim, selling millions of records worldwide and topping the charts in the UK and overseas.
Frontman Graham has been a successful songwriter since the 60s, with his songs providing the soundtrack to so many teenage memories; from his first songwriting hit For Your Love recorded by The Yardbirds in 1965, through catchy tunes and lyrics for The Hollies and Herman’s Hermits in the 1960s, a decade of hits with 10cc in the 1970s and early 1980s, to songwriting partnerships with Kirsty MacColl, Suggs from Madness, Andrew Gold, Gary Burr, Tim Rice and – still contributing to those teenage soundtracks – co-writing with McFly on their Number One album Wonderland.
10cc’s Graham Gouldman will be supported by Roxy Magic – The UK’s leading Roxy Music tribute band.
Roxy Magic are the UK’s best and longest-running tribute to Roxy Music & Bryan Ferry. Formed in 2004, ROXY MAGIC lovingly recreate four decades of incredible music: from art school retro-futurism, to classic standards via sophisticated, adult-oriented rock, winning numerous awards for their energetic performances.
Meanwhile on Sunday 23 July – the all star evening concert features two incredible headliners with R&B legend Alexander O’Neal who will be performing at Hale Barns as part of his farewell tour, touring the UK for the last time this year and TV’s Craig Charles who will be performing one of his famous Funk & Soul DJ Sets.
