Rock Of Ages

You’ve GOT to be a fan of 80s rock music if you’re here, haven’t you? Of COURSE you are! The musical Rock of Ages is currently showing at The Opera House Manchester and tells the story of two people falling in love – Drew (Luke Walsh) and Sherrie (Rhiannon Chesterman). Drew works at a nightclub […]

Heathers – The Musical

Heathers (the film) is one of the cult classics from the 80s. It told the story of an unknown girl at high school who wanted to become popular, and inadvertently became embroiled in a murder or three. Heathers The Musical is a modern, updated version, and my WORD is it good! Heathers The Musical is […]

Review – Bat Out Of Hell The Musical

This was our first outing into a social gathering setting since, well, y’know, the global apocalypse, and man alive I was excited! Even the walk up to The Opera House became exciting. As we approached, 30 Harley Davidsons drifted their way around the corner and formed a troupe in front of the Theatre. They sat […]

Bat Out Of Hell The Musical

Opening in Manchester on the 11th September, Jim Steinman’s spectacular musical Bat Out of Hell hits the highway on a 2021 UK tour. Bringing to life the legendary anthems of Jim Steinman & Meat Loaf, this critically-acclaimed production uniquely combines the magic and excitement of a musical with the immense energy of rock ‘n’ roll. […]

An Evening With John Cleese

For people like me who enjoy Comiccons, 80s conventions and live events, lockdown has been a nightmare. When I first heard that John Cleese was coming to Manchester for An Evening With John Cleese, I was overjoyed. Skeptical, I will admit, but also overjoyed. I hadn’t been in a room with many people for over […]

John flippin Cleese!

An Evening With John Cleese in Manchester

John Cleese is coming to Manchester on 19th July, to perform his one-man show An Evening With John Cleese at the BEC Arena. The list of his Film and TV credits, as both a writer and as a performer, is immense! Co-creator of Monty Pythons Flying Circus, writer and actor in A Fish Called Wanda, […]

On Safari

Safari? So Goodie! When I was young I never really understood why, when Biggins shouted out “SAFARI!”, the audience retorted with “SAGOODY.” What was a Sagoody?” Maybe it was a jungle snake? On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day […]

Stock, Aitken and Waterman – The 80s Albums

I decided to collect every Stock, Aitken and Waterman album from the 80s. Why? Because, for me, SAW produced what I consider to be the best music in the 80s. I wasn’t into the moody synth scene of the early 80s, and although I had a Madness, a Shakin Stevens and an Adam And The […]

Ashens and the Polybius Heist

Remember the 80s? Of course you do! That’s why you’re here, at an 80s site! And do you remember 80s arcade machines? (That’s a rhetorical question – there is no need to keep answering out loud from now on.) If your favourite film genre is “80s retro gaming heists”, then you will certainly be adding […]

Purple People Eater

This was a game in which you had to remove little plastic people from the mouth of a gelatinous purple people eater. It worked in much the same way as Operation, in that you used metal pliers to extract people from the monsters metal-lined mouth. In a way this is most 80s boys dream, getting […]
