Original members including the iconic lead singer, Jimmy Pursey, will be playing a set list including their greatest hits and classic songs on Friday November 22.

Jimmy and the band are enjoying something of a renaissance as their unique brand of punk and social comment is being heard by a new audience while older followers are keen to relive the great atmosphere the band create.

Sham 69 guarantee a magnificent show with energetic performances and sing-along classics that catapulted the band to success in the 1970s.

Jimmy and the band also include current songs in the set ensuring a truly mixed bag of great ‘up and at it’ music.

Supporting Sham 69 at the new festival will be Whitby legends, Raw 60s, who have a huge local following of their own.
