Redditch Editorial 29th Aug, 2016 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016

REGGAE legends UB40 are to top a star studded all-day music festival at Worcestershire CCC’s New Road ground on Saturday, September 10.

Lulu, the Lighthouse Family, M People with Heather Small, Alexander O’Neal and the Real Thing are also part of the bill for a 12 hour music extravaganza at the County’s headquarters.

It is a line-up with a combined record sales of more than 200 million and dozens of hits spanning all eras from the 1960s up until the 2000s.

Tickets can be purchased on line at www.wccc.co.uk and for additional information visit www.wccc.co.uk/concerts.

Early birds are now sold out but standard tickets are now on sale for £45 per adult, £10 for under 12’s and in the corporate areas from just £100 per person to include a premium grazing buffet, private bars and private viewing areas.

It will be the first major music concert at New Road since legend Elton John appeared in 2006 and thousands of fans were treated to a superb two hour show.

But this September’s concert has SIX top chart acts to delight music lovers in Worcester and beyond – with doors opening at 11am and the event drawing to a close at midnight.

Worcestershire general manager Jon Graham said: “In terms of the sheer number of top artists and the number of records sold, in excess of 200 million, this will be the biggest concert ever staged at New Road.

“It should be an occasion to remember for everyone there.”
