Kick off the May Bank Holiday weekend with Martin Kemp, who will take the crowd back to the 80s for an unforgettable journey through the disco decade.

Martin is bringing his 80s party to The Waterfront on Thursday, May 7 and will perform a DJ set, spinning all the greatest hits from the era.

The English actor, musician and director is best known as the bassist in the new wave band Spandau Ballet which has sold millions of records worldwide, with hits including Gold and True.

He is also known for his role as villain Steve Owen on EastEnders, which he played from 1998 until 2002, and his biggest storyline came when his character murdered former lover Saskia Duncan and framed Matthew Rose.

Steve also had a feud with Phil Mitchell and was one of the prime suspects in the Who Shot Phil whodunit in 2001 and was eventually killed in a car chase.
