As the resort celebrates their 30th birthday this year, what better way than to celebrate with some nostalgia from the 80’s itself!
Well it seems Alton Towers has that thought very much in mind, throwing an 80’s concert FREE to all theme park guests on Sunday 23rd May 2010.

The resort have also secured some popular 80’s artists to perform at the concert, including Rick Astley, Kim Wilde, Bananarama, Midge Ure, The Christians, Curiosity Killed the Cat and The Here & Now Band.

The concert is planned to held from 1pm to 6pm, with a support band playing from midday.

With it expecting to be a popular event, there’s no details yet about entry for Annual Pass holders etc, only that the event will be free to all theme park guests – but we’ll update you with more information as and when we know it.
