Some of the 1980s’ biggest acts will be on stage for Party at the Gardens, presented by Here and Now and produced by Tony Denton Promotions, including Rick Astley; Hot Chocolate; Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolan and Jay Aston formally of Bucks Fizz; Toyah; Altered Images; Odyssey; and Katrina (ex of the Waves), all getting the party started on Bank Holiday Monday, May 25th.
It will be a great way to celebrate not just the end of another memorable season for the Saints, but to say a fond farewell to the Sturtridge Pavilion, which is being brought down this coming summer after overseeing nearly 50 years of rugby.
The Party at the Gardens will have picnic tickets on the main pitch available (£29), as well as seats in the stands (£25). Picnic packages are also available to order in advance, and party-goers are welcome to bring their own food and drink, provided they’re in suitable containers.
Tickets can be booked now at the Franklin’s Gardens Ticket Office or online via www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/buytickets and Saints chief executive Allan Robson says that it will be a great Gardens occasion.
“The atmosphere created for matches at Franklin’s Gardens is renowned throughout the rugby world, but we’ve staged many a great occasion for the whole community as well, including our musical fireworks displays and the town show,” he said. “Party at the Gardens will see us celebrate the end of a spectacular season and bring the curtain down on the Sturtridge Pavilion, a building which has meant a great deal to the club and its supporters over the past 50 years.
“All of the acts who will take to the stage are guaranteed to give us a great time, playing the hits that made them famous, both back in the 1980s and now.
“We’re looking forward to it, and are looking forward to welcoming as many people as possible to Franklin’s Gardens this May!”
