Your Memories
Nicole Firth remembers ...
Vivid memories of being very hot and sticky for this one. So hot and sticky the costumes kept malfunctioning- namely our skirts kept falling off. Bucks Fizz eat your hearts out! Wonderfully camp, loads of fun. And the memory of Matt Sweatman dancing will stay with me for always...
Anne-marie Greene remembers ...
Loved this. Drying our sweaty costumes in the sun between matinee and evening, and my skirt falling down mid dance because the glue on the belt failed because of the heat. And of course the amazing robot line dance to WipeOut
