Belinda Carlisle Brings her Runaway Horses to Wrexham

BELINDA CARLISLE ‘Runaway Horses 30th Anniversary’ UK Tour comes to WREXHAM – William Aston Hall on Sunday 29th September 2019!

If you were listening to the Saturday Show with Karen and Will you would have heard about the brilliant news that Belinda Carlisle is bringing a tour date to Wrexham and it's going to a gig that you don't want to miss.

American singer Belinda Carlisle announces she’s back on the road with a very special UK tour this Autumn with the ‘Runaway Horses 30th Anniversary Tour’ in September & October 2019 performing a selection of tracks taken from her 3rd solo album ‘Runaway Horses’.

Belinda Carlisle's first venture into music was a brief stint as drummer for the punk band The Germs, under the name Dottie Danger, although illness (specifically mononucleosis) prevented her from ever performing with them live. Soon after leaving this band, she founded The Go-Go's (originally named The Misfits), with friend and fellow music novice Jane Wiedlin. With bassist-turned-guitarist Charlotte Caffey, guitarist-turned-bassist Kathy Valentine, and drummer Gina Schock, the Go-Go's became one of the most successful American bands of the early 1980s, helping usher new wave music into popular American radio, and becoming the first all-female band in rock history to ever achieve a #1 album, who also wrote their own music, and played their own instruments. The Go-Go's recorded two more studio albums (including 1982 Vacation, which went gold thanks to the title track). "Head over Heels," from their 1984 album Talk Show, made it to #11, but they never repeated the success of their 1981 multi-platinum debut, Beauty and the Beat, which featured the hits "We Got the Beat" and "Our Lips Are Sealed".

Gwrych Castle in Abergele to Get Medieval in August

If you've not seen or heard the news on the mid-week and Saturday Show with Karen Woodham and Will Tomlinson-Roberts, then let us tell you about what's happening at Gwrych Castle on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th August, the castle celebrating all things medieval for the weekend.

The amazing Castle in Abergele will be bringing folk tales to life and the medieval world of knights and fair maidens, as noble warriors take to their steeds to fight for glory, there will be mystical wizards casting spells and up to no good, look out for the medieval characters that will be roaming the castle (the perfect opportunity to grab photo of the characters from a time gone by).

Sticking with the medieval theme during the weekend, there will be a hog roast to keep those rumbling tums at bay, as well as a collection of food stalls for a variety of tasty treats to keep you topped up throughout the weekend's festivities.

Don't worry about leaving your four-legged friends out of the fun, they can come along as well (as long as they are kept on their leads), you can give them a chance to taste some dog-friendly ice cream to keep them cool during the warm spell that is expected.

There will be so much to keep you entertained during the Saturday and Sunday, along with the knights and maidens, there will also be dancers, music, birds of prey displays and face painting for you to enjoy during your visit, if you want to remember your visit and the fun you have, then you can visit the crafts stalls that will have an assortment of souvenirs to take home. Charities will also be there to greet you and welcome your support for their amazing causes.
