An Audience With Martin Kemp
Saturday, 11th March 2017
Doors Open: 7.30pm Show Starts at: 8.00pm
Star of stadium, stage and small and silver screen, Martin Kemp is one of Britain’s most identifiable pop culture icons of the past 40 years. By the age of 10 he was appearing regularly on television in programmes including Rumpole Of The Bailey, Dixon Of Dock Green, The Tomorrow People and Jackanory, but Martin’s leap to super stardom came in the late 70s when he formed new romantic band Spandau Ballet.
The group toured the world, releasing eight UK Top 10 albums and 17 Top 40 singles, as well as topping the charts in the USA. In 1990 Martin starred alongside his brother Gary in multi award winning film The Krays, leading him to move to Hollywood where he made many more films including Sugar Town opposite Rosanna Arquette, Monk Dawson and Embrace of the Vampire.
In 1998 he was offered the role of Steve Owen in EastEnders, for which he won Best Male Actor at the National Television Awards, and has gone on to appear in numerous other series including ITV’s Serious and Organised, The Family, Brides in the Bath and Miss Marple. Martin’s autobiography, published in 2000, spent several months in the Sunday Times best sellers list while the last two years have been spent playing to sold out arenas with the reformed Spandau Ballet.
Martin will be telling stories from his fascinating life, as well as taking questions from the audience.
