The hugely popular Summer Pops at Parkgate Cheshire returns to the banks of the River Dee for Marquee Week at The Neston Club, formerly known as Neston Cricket Club, this Friday 8th July 2022. 


The Summer Pops event will be headlined by internationally renowned group Hue & Cry. This award-winning and bestselling duo, featuring brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane, took the music scene by storm in the eighties, after their first single ‘Labour of Love’ made the Top 10 in 1987. Hue & Cry then enjoyed a series of hits including ‘Looking for Linda’ and ‘Violently’ which formed a part of their successful album releases during the decade. The band have continued to record and play live ever since, having now sold in excess of two million records worldwide. 


Hue & Cry have also supported some of the most prestigious acts on the planet, including U2, Madonna and Van Morrison, and later this summer they will be working with fellow Scottish world-beating band, Simple Minds. For Summer Pops, though, it will be their name at the top of the Bill, performing their most popular tracks alongside songs from their upcoming album.


Summer Pops Event Organiser and Owner Pez Tellett explains


“This year’s event looks to be on track to be bigger and better than 2021. We have seen tickets fly out for this event and the lack of covid-19 restrictions have meant people are now more inclined to attend music events and festivals this Summer. Hugh & Cry are such a popular band and the demand to see them perform locally has been great to see. I am also proud to champion local talent and Zuzu and By the Sea are both fantastic local talents who have seen their popularity grow. By the Sea recently supported the Coral on tour and Zuzu has a real buzz around her currently. It also gives us great pleasure to welcome back  Yorkshire group The Lights, who enthralled the crowds here in last year’s event.”


Last year’s headline act, internationally-acclaimed Liverpool group The Christians,said “As a group, we want to wish everyone on the team and all of the acts a brilliant Summer Pops 2022.”


Well known faces such as Mick Mcartney all attended last year’s event which was a sell out. This year there are still a handful of tickets left, with Friday 8th July forecast to be great weather.
