A celebration of two-tone and ska music will taking over the Winter Gardens in Weston-super-Mare this month.

Three acts, including The Neville Staple Band, are performing on the night to celebrate 40 years of the popular musical styles.

Two-tone fuses traditional ska with musical elements of punk rock and new wave.

The Neville Staple Band, along with legendary frontman Neville Staple - known as The Original Rude Boy - will perform ska classics and career hits from The Specials, Fun Boy Three, Special Beat, Rude Rebels and more.

Jerry Dammers - founder of the two-tone record label and main songwriter and keyboard player for The Specials, Jerry Dammers - will also be playing two DJ sets either side of The Neville Staple Band during the evening.
