YMCA West and Central Herts is inviting people to travel back to the ’80s with a live theatre spectacular Hair Rock Experience, featuring the music of Bon Jovi, Poison, Whitesnake, Guns N’ Roses, Heart, Europe and many more.

All proceeds from this family friendly performance at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage on Saturday, May 3, will go to the charity for its work through Space Youth and Community Centres in Hatfield, WGC and Stevenage.

Performing in Stevenage exclusively before embarking on a national tour later in 2014, the Hair Rock Experience is being put together by a band of seasoned musicians who wanted to do something in aid of the newly-merged West and Central Herts YMCA Youth and Community Work.

Christine Novelli, Space development manager at YMCA West and Central Herts, said: “We’re really excited about this show which is aimed at anyone who loves good live music and is up for ‘Nothin’ But a Good Time’.

“Whether you want to relive your youth or experience 80s stadium rock for the first time, this is an opportunity to backcomb your hair, don your leg warmers and shoulder pads and rock.”

She added: “We’re delighted that the Hair Rock Experience band are doing this and that all proceeds from ticket sales will benefit our work across Hertfordshire and at Space Centres particularly. This performance will help us reach out to even more people.”

Tickets for this special charity show are £14.50, and £10 concessions, and are available from the Gordon Craig box office online at www.gordon-craig.co.uk or by calling 01438 363200.

Organisers are also running a raffle with prizes including an Orange Crush CR20 Amp, an electric guitar and practice amp, a family ticket to the Gordon Craig Theatre and a luxury hamper.

* See next week’s Welwyn Hatfield Times, out Wednesday, for the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show.
