Evesham Arts Centre’s summer programme has been released with the likes of Lee Evans, Marty Wilde and the Wildcats, Jethro and more stars from the entertainment world coming to Evesham as the barbecue weather comes alive.
In terms of music, it’s a rock ‘n’ roll start to the season at the Victoria Avenue building with Britain’s original pop star Marty Wilde igniting audiences in May with hits from the ‘50s and ‘60s.
Brit Pop takes over later in the month with top tribute act OASIS UK performing the iconic hits of the ‘90s band.
