Viva la 80s! at Canary Wharf

For one night only, East Wintergarden will pay tribute to the fabulous 80s with an evening celebrating the best music, the most outrageous hair and the brightest neon clothing! Dance the evening away at Viva la 80s! to some all-time classics and be prepared to wallow in nostalgia as you experience this blast from the past.

The outstanding musicians of The Sway Allstars Orchestra will perform as they reminisce about parachute pants, leg warmers and back-combed hair. The evening will provide the opportunity to dance to Chaka Khan, Tears for Fears, Huey Lewis & The News, Irene Cara, Prince, Cameo plus much more.

Spandex garments and rolled up jacket sleeves are welcome for an evening of big energy, big hair, big earrings and big belts. An 80s quiz will feature on the big screen when you need that all important break from grooving like Madonna, performing to Fame with your fake microphone or rocking out to Van Halen’s Jump!

So come fully up-to-date on this popular decade and prepare to be thrown back in time.
