The headline acts for the Saturday night spectacular at Maidenhead Festival have been announced and once again promise a fantastic night of entertainment.
The free concert, on Saturday, July 26, is one of the highlights of the two-day event in Kidwells Park.
This year Stephen Triffitt and Mark Adams, the original Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in London’s West End production of The Rat Pack, will get the evening off to a swinging start.
They will perform hit songs from That’s Amore to That’s Life and Mack The Knife to New York, New York, all backed by the internationally-renowned Manhattan Swing Orchestra under the direction of Maidenhead resident, Toby Cruse. Later, The Gimme Gimme Girls and their all-star band will perform a high-energy set of Abba’s greatest hits, including Waterloo, Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen and many more.
Seen by over a million people worldwide, The girls are firmly established as one of Europe’s premier Abba acts, faithfully recreating the magic, splendour and timeless music of this iconic pop group.
Finally, Tchaikovsky’s ever-popular 1812 Over-ture will accompany a spectacular firework display, to bring the evening to a dramatic close.
The festival will see a packed weekend programme of family-theme fun including musicians, stalls, games and sideshows, a funfair, an artificial beach, treasure hunt and strongman competition.
Festival organisers are still looking for more sponsors to come forward to make the event bigger and better than ever before.
Chairman Steph James said: “If you, or your company, want to get involved there are plenty of opportunities to support this fantastic town event.
“This is also a great opportunity to get your name in front of the thousands of local people who attend every year.”
Sponsor packages are available to suit all budgets.
