A night of chart music from decades gone by will be played at a North Somerset disco, and the Times is giving readers a chance to win tickets to the event.

A nostalgic evening to remember the party years, from the groovy 1970s to the rockin' 90s, will be held at a seafront pavilion venue next month.

It is likely songs from artists such as David Bowie, Madonna and Bob Marley to bands including Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, and ABBA will feature on the night.

The evening has been organised to bring back regular discos, where an 'impressive light show' will be put-on for guests and fancy dress is optional.

Singers, songwriters and bands from the 1970s including Elton John, The Bee Gees, The Rolling Stones Bob Dylan and Queen.

Queen, made up of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon, were a British rock group whose album record sales range from 170million to 300million records - making them one of the world's best-selling music bands.

The 80s saw the likes of Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi, the Pet Shop Boys and Wham! hit the music scene.

Oasis, the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, and Foo Fighters also made headlines in the 90s, with the Spice Girls selling 85 million records worldwide, making them the most successful girl group in UK chart history.

Weston's Winter Gardens, in Royal Parade, will hold That Friday Thing disco, on August 2, from 8pm to midnight.

Tickets, priced £5, are available from www.westonwintergardens.co.uk or call 01934 411100.
