Seven bands turning back the clock for retro festival
Seven bands have so far been confirmed for the second annual Turn The Clocks Back retro-festival in Scunthorpe later this month.
The nine-hour show at the town's Bridge Hotel on October 27 will feature a string of 1980s local bands like The Shreddies and Spoke who have reformed for the occasion.
Co-organiser Pete Fenwick said last year's Turn The Clocks Back raised £500 for the British Heart Foundation.
The initial festival was hosted at the Priory Hotel but this year it was decided to relocate to the nearby Lincoln Imp. At the 11th hour however the decision was made to settle for The Bridge as the venue.

Pete said the £5 admission on the door would be donated to the town's Lindsey Lodge Hospice and it was hoped to better last year's total.
He said: "If there is anyone else out there who was playing in the 1980s and would like to take part they can get in touch with us via the website www.turntheclockback.co.uk or through Facebook."
Meanwhile, a technical hitch has forced the cancellation of the second heat of the 2012 Scunthorpe Rock Open tonight (Thursday, October 11).
The second heat has now been rescheduled at The Bridge Hotel for 7.30pm on Friday, October 19.
Confirmed entrants are Lock Up Laura, Smiley Mr Cam, Fateful, Ameira and Bear Makes Ninja.
Scunthorpe's North Lindsey College has confirmed it will again be one of the sponsors of this year's event by giving the winner's a free day's recording in the campus studios.
The 31st Rock Open kicked off with a bang with six bands battling against each other for a chance to compete in the coveted final.
In last week's first heat, judges voted Haxey five-piece The Colliers into the final.
