80s pop queens come to town

Not one but two pop queens from the 1980s are set to appear in Otley this month.

First up is actress, TV presenter and pop icon Toyah Wilcox (pictured) who will be bringing her Up Close & Personal acoustic show to Otley Courthouse on Saturday March 23 at 8pm.

For those lucky enough to have tickets, the show presents a unique chance to experience Toyah in an intimate setting where music and stories take centre stage.

The following week, sees perhaps the first major female star of the 1980s, Hazel O’Connor, appearing at the same venue. Hazel, who rose to fame after starring in the film Breaking Glass that gave her a string of hit records, will be at the Courthouse from 8pm on Sunday March 31.

Sadly for fans, both concerts are now sold out, but their appearance is indicative of Otley’s pulling power when it comes to major stars appearing in the town.
