Punk icon Toyah Willcox has just as much attitude now as she did when she burst on to the music scene in the 1980s with the hit singles ‘It’s A Mystery’, ‘I Wanna Be Free’, ‘IEYA’ and ‘Thunder In The Mountains’.She had previously appeared in the films Quadrophenia and Jubilee.

From punk princess to high priestess of TV, Toyah Willcox is a uniquely gifted performer. Charismatic, outspoken and impossible to categorise, she is one of Britain’s iconic household names – an award-winning rock legend as well as a much-loved actress and music composer.

This is a unique chance to experience Toyah with a full live band performing a set of her hit singles and classic songs.

Toyah has had eight Top 40 singles and released over 20 albums, Her biggest hits were “It’s a Mystery”, “Thunder in the Mountains” and “I Want to Be Free”.  She has written two books, appeared in over forty stage plays and ten feature films.
