Dig out your leg warmers, dust off your shoulder pads and re-perm those roots - The Roxy is back in Sheffield for one night only and we have VIP hotel prizes, writes Graham Walker.
Sonia, Jaki Graham, Carol Decker and T’Pau, Black Lace, Hazell Dean, Pat Sharp, Rotherham’s own Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers, who had a trio of number ones, Doctor and The Medics, Nathan Moore of Brother’s Beyond fame and Hallam FM’s Steve White are on the show.
Roxy Live is at Roxy Disco’s former home, now Sheffield’s O2 Academy, which will be transformed back in time to host the pop extravaganza on Sunday, October 19.
Supported by Feel the Force, the gig will raise money for Rain Rescue, a Rotherham based organisation that helps pets in crisis across South Yorkshire.

Organiser, Lauren Moverley who has previously put on events in aid of the charity said: “As animal lovers and supporters of the work Rain Rescue do, we specifically wanted to put on an 80s themed music event to try to raise as much money as possible.”
Founder of Rain Rescue, Jacquie Neilson said: “It’s fantastic that this event is being organised in aid of Rain Rescue, we’re really looking forward to it!
“We have up to 35 animals in our care at any one time and it’s a constant worry that we won’t have enough money coming in but with people like Lauren supporting us we are able to continue the work we do – we’re extremely thankful!”
