Alan Raw commented: “We’re so excited about being invited to announce the Saturday night band in what will be the Adelphi’s landmark week of celebrations. The headliner is one we’ve got enormous respect for and we know there’ll be queues around the block to get tickets once they’re announced. The Adelphi means an enormous amount to us at BBC Introducing on Radio Humberside and we’re delighted to be involved in shouting about the Adelphi 30 Celebrations.”
Polly Sowden, one of the event organisers commented: “The full week has been programmed carefully and the outcome is very special. Adelphi will welcome back many music acts that have contributed to Adelphi’s heritage. Saturday night will be a special one off show, expect surprises, expect the unexpected…” Photo Credit: Anna Bean
