TALENTED acts such as Billy Ocean, Howard Jones, Go West and Brother Beyond are all confirmed for Let’s Rock Bristol – which is set to be the biggest 1980’s festival in the South West.

The event will be set in the Grade II listed Blaise Castle Estate, in Ashton Court Estate, which is just outside the city centre.

Let’s Rock Bristol is set to provide an array of live music, perfect for all the family.
