Times & Star: Toyah To Headline Workington

March 16th, 2012

A variety of publications, including the ‘Times & Star’, report on Toyah headlining the Workington ‘Decades’ Festival.


Singing star Toyah Wilcox will headline Workington’s Decades town centre music festival later this year.

The 1980s self-styled punk princess, best known for chart hit It’s A Mystery, will perform at the event between May 25 and 27.

Toyah’s career spans 30 years and she has had 13 top 40 singles, recorded 20 albums, presented TV programmes and appeared on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out Of Here! She recently starred in the West End rock show Vampires Rock.

The Decades festival will be based around 12 pubs and clubs on the town centre “circuit” and will celebrate music from the 1960s to the 1990s. Set up by Paul McGee, landlord of the Red House, and run by Maryport Festivals Limited, it promises a weekend of musical nostalgia.
