Pop legend Nik Kershaw will be performing on Friday, August 10 at Herts County Showground, Redbourn.

One of the biggest stars of any decade, Nik is behind some of British music’s most iconic songs, including The Riddle, Wide Boy, Wouldn’t It Be Good, Don Quixote and I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.

He appeared at Live Aid in 1985 and later penned the Chesney Hawkes smash hit The One and Only.

Then on the Sunday night will be a chance to see the legendary 10CC, responsible for classics including I’m Not In Love, The Wall Street Shuffle, I’m Mandy Fly Me, and Dreadlock Holiday.
