Oundle’s “party of the year” is a fantastic and memorable evening of musical entertainment under the stars. Whether you just want to relax with friends, enjoy your own picnic, visit one of the food stalls or let the kids enjoy some of the extra entertainments, the Wharf is the place to be. Local beers from Nene Valley Brewery and wine from Amps will be on sale throughout the event.
This year we are proud give star billing to Absolute Bowie supported by The Houndogs. Other support bands, including ever-popular local band Disarray, will feature from 5pm.
While there will only ever be one David Bowie - he was unique in every way and an inspiration to millions - Absolute Bowie, Europe’s finest David Bowie tribute band, continue to celebrate the life and much loved music of the Starman with a spectacular show.
The five piece has toured all over Europe for the last 8 years, faithfully performing Bowie’s music with theatricality to match the man himself, taking the audience through the different personas of Bowie, from Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane through to The Thin White Duke and the blond, suited Bowie of the Let's Dance years.
Absolutely wicked. As one who was there, watching AB put me back there again. For anyone who missed it or fans who want to relive it I definitely recommend it. As close to the real thing that you'll get. Enjoy. Woody Woodmansey (Spiders from Mars)
The Houndogs are quite simply one of the best Rock and Roll bands in the UK. Formed nearly 15 years ago by the three Wilson brothers, the band has built up a wide reputation for their exhilarating live performances of rockabilly and rock 'n' roll music, which include covers of hits by Elvis, Buddy Holly and The Stray Cats. Their wild energy has to be seen to be believed and their set includes stage stunts and pyrotechnics which always have the crowd begging for more.
