Radio 2's All Star Party in Bridlington almost sold out

The party comes to The Spa on September 29.

Only a handful of tickets are left for a big-name concert at Bridlington Spa later this month.

The Radio 2 All Star Party will see the station broadcasting live from the venue for six hours on a Saturday night.

Presenters Trevor Nelson, Craig Charles and Ana Matronic will all be hosting their shows at The Spa, presenting a spectacular night of soul, R&B and dance music

The night will feature live performances by Clean Bandit, Incognito, Lemar, Kid Creole & The Coconuts and the Fantasy Funk Band featuring Gabrielle, Jaki Graham and John Turrell.

But more than 90% of the tickets for September 29 have already been snapped up.

Spa general manager Andrew Aldis said: "This is the first capacity standing event that we have not used ticket agencies and we have been overjoyed at the response.

"We told the BBC we could offer a one-stop shop for everything they needed for their event. It's very exciting."

He said tickets had sold faster than for the inaugural event at Manchester Apollo last year.

And with the Spa's name being mentioned to millions of viewers on Radio 2 every day, the event is putting Bridlington on the music map.

"Reputation-wise, it is fantastic for The Spa," added Andrew.

Lewis Carnie, head of BBC Radio 2, said: “After the success of our first All Star Party last year to celebrate 50 years of BBC Radio 2, I am delighted that we are taking the party to the wonderful town of Bridlington with an amazing line-up and an evening of live DJing with our esteemed Saturday night presenters.”

Presenter Craig Charles said: “It’s a pleasure to be partying at the legendary Bridlington Spa, playing the best music and performing with some of my favourite musicians. This is not an evening to be missed.”

But with only a few tickets left, music fans will have to be quick. Tickets are on sale at www.bridspa.com
