Early in 1981, four complete strangers sat in the drawing room of a house in Fulham and were told: “you are now Bucks Fizz”.
In the eight weeks between that first meeting and appearing on “A Song for Europe” on 11th March 1981, Bucks Fizz were hurled into a melee of rehearsing, recording, styling, interviews and photoshoot.
All their hard work and effort was to pay dividends – they went on to win the Song For Europe and Eurovision Song Contest 1981 and became household names around the world.
With over 20 singles released over the next few years including 3 number ones, My Camera Never Lies, Land Of Make Believe and of course, Making Your Mind Up, they sold in excess of 15 million records, spending 219 weeks in the UK charts alone! Making Your Mind Up went to No 1 in nine countries!
Now they’re embarking on a brand new tour of the UK, stopping off in Hastings along the way on Thursday 9 April.
