80's Event


Guess the year - Margaret Thatcher becomes the UK’s longest serving PM; Rick Astley was ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’; the £1 note ceases to be legal tender and………………………….East Cheshire Hospice opens its doors.

The year is 1988 and in the February of that year, the first patient was treated in the Hospice before its formal launch three months later. 

And proving to be hugely popular amongst the list of 30th birthday celebrations is a one-off 80s music night taking place in the grounds of Gawsworth Hall in Cheshire.

Featuring the 80s tribute band, The Wild Boys, the evening will be a party occasion with a cordoned off space for Hospice guests and a dedicated marquee area for everyone to enjoy birthday celebrations including a cake.

Picnic hampers for the event are now on sale online at £20 for two people and there’ll be plenty of time to eat and enjoy the grounds with gates opening from 2pm.

Tickets for the Friday August 10 event are now on sale, priced £22.50 each, along with VIP tickets priced at £30 which includes a glass of prosecco and an 80s goody bag on arrival.

“This is a really important year for us and I reckon this is going to be one of our highlight occasions,” says Events Manager, Joanna Boyd. “The Wild Boys have performed with some of the pop greats so its sure to be great fun.”
