Ultimate 80s: Five Star, Heaven 17, Bootleg Blondie
Remember Hammer pants, shoulder pads, dodgy mullets and boys wearing eyeliner? Stage an 80s rebellion second time around at Butlins with some big-haired sounds. You really can't touch this!
The Pearson siblings, dubbed the British Black Royal Family of Pop, and Britain’s answer to the Jackson Five by the media, burst onto the scene in 1983 and were managed by their father, Buster Pearson.
After performing a sizzling rendition of a song named 'Problematic' for the BBC’s Pebble Mill at one Show the group signed with a major record label TENT/RCA and released their 1985 debut album 'Luxury Of Life' and the rest is, as they say, a phenomenal pop history. Renowned for their dynamic sound and fabulous dance routines they rocked the British and US Pop Charts in the 80s and became a great inspiration to many young people worldwide.
Five Star were the youngest British group to have a number 1 album and the first group to achieve 7 consecutive hit singles from one album in the UK. They also broke Michael Jackson’s record of becoming the youngest group ever to top the British charts and the first Black group to top the UK charts in 1987.

The brainchild of Martyn Ware and born from the collapse of the original Human League, 80's synth pioneers Heaven 17 have stood the test of time and been an influence on the future of modern music for over thirty years. Their debut 1981 album, 'Penthouse And Pavement', was, and remains, a modern classic. Glenn Gregory and Martyn continue to perform the hits from their overwhelming back catalogue, including 'Temptation' and '(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang', along with unveiling their first new material in 12 years.
