Cumbria Live: Toyah Ready For A Retro Party

April 10th, 2015

cumbrialive15aEighties star Toyah talks Fifty Shades of Grey, Seattle fairtytales and her upcoming concert in Carlisle.

Toyah Willcox in Fifty Shades of Grey shocker! When the singer saw the trailer for this blockbusting film at the cinema, something seemed familiar. “It was partly shot in an apartment I have been trying to buy in Seattle for the past two years!” she says.

“I just laughed when I saw it. My husband and I commute between Seattle and England. It’s always fun when you see Seattle on films and programmes.”

Seeing the apartment in a film about a sado-masochistic relationship has not put her off buying it. “I’m even keener on it,” she says. “It’s got good provenance!”

Toyah is coming to Cumbria this summer as part of Ultimate Ladies Night at Carlisle Racecourse.

March 9th, 2015


Belinda Carlisle, Toyah and Sonia amongst five acts to play Carlisle Racecourse

Carlisle Racecourse will have FIVE headline acts performing live at Ultimate Ladies’ Night this year, it was announced today (Mon Mar 9).

The appropriately named Belinda Carlisle will appear along with fellow 80s stars Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Toyah, Altered Images and Sonia at the Cumbrian track’s annual music and racing extravaganza on Monday August 3.

All five acts – appearing as the Here and Now tour – will perform consecutively on a giant trackside stage after the final race at the evening’s race meeting. Ultimate Ladies’ Night is a unique event as it is the only racing fixture in the world at which every horse in every race is ridden by a woman.

Toyah said: “I cannot wait for Here and Now to come to Carlisle.” As a keen historian, she added: “I will make time to visit the castle and the magnificent cathedral and then I can’t wait to perform. Here and Now is always an uplifting party of a concert. Every song from every artist is a winner and we always make sure the audience have the time of their lives. See you soon!”
