So you thought there was nothing happening at the end of November on the Isle of Wight? Well think again! Here’s something really exciting to look forward to as the nights draw in & temperatures start to drop…

Organisers of the hugely popular Jack Up The Summer festival are putting on a couple of great feel-good party nights – one for 80’s aficionados and one for lovers of 90’s dance groove, both featuring top name chart acts to help transport you right back to your disco days.

The cheese factor has been ramped up for the 80’s night on Saturday 23rd November as The Fizz, formerly known as Bucks Fizz take to the stage to perform a fabulous live set crammed full of their greatest hits.

Bucks Fizz became one of the UK's biggest pop acts after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981 with their famous skirt-ripping dance routine. Their song, ‘Making Your Mind Up,’ went to number one in nine countries, and was followed by hit singles including ‘My Camera Never Lies’ & ‘Land of Make Believe.’

More than 30 years on, the original members of Bucks Fizz - Cheryl Baker & Jay Aston, are joined by founding member Mike Nolan & are still ripping skirts off to cheers from fans both old and new.


Both nights will be held at Lower Hyde in Shanklin which boasts a large ballroom with a traditional wooden dance floor & stage with custom retro video disco & effects.

Add to the mix a bespoke photo booth, huge bar and over 1000 glow sticks to give away; the Jack Up Christmas nights offer a ready-made party, ideal for getting you in the mood for the festive season or for work, school or family reunions. A series of DJ sets with all your favourite 80’s and 90’s party classics and guilty pleasures will continue through until 1am.


Tickets are available at the absolute bargain price of just £15 per night. They come with the promise that you will sing your heart out & dance your socks off! So get your fancy dress ready & prepare for not one, but two of the best parties of the year!

Doors open at 8pm.

A strictly limited number of tickets can be purchased online (via the 'BOOK TICKETS' button above) as well as over the counter at Lower Hyde reception in Shanklin. Over 18s only.

This is a great opportunity for Island visitors to come & experience everything the Island has to offer out of season. As such mainland residents can save 20% off of Wightlink & Red Funnel ferry travel when purchasing their event admission tickets online.
