Polish your platforms and fish out those flares – legendary 70s disco extravaganza Bus Stop is coming to Beverley for a fun-filled night at the races!
Racegoers can relive the disco night which filled the dancefloor every Tuesday at Hull’s Lexington Avenue (LAs) nightclub. Bus Stop launched at LAs in 1995 and ran for seven years, with thousands of clubbers enjoying the very best of 70s disco hits and revelling in fashions that time tried to forget!
With the nightclub site now making way for a new DoubleTree By Hilton hotel, Beverley Racecourse is ensuring cheesy nights at LAs won’t be consigned to history. Tony Loveshaft, Tricity Bendix and Crystal Maze are just some of the original show’s cast bringing the wildly popular retro disco to the Westwood course on Tuesday, June 20, after an exciting evening of racing. At the height of its residency at LAs, Bus Stop performed to over 2,000 revellers and became a huge hit with clubbers clad in seventies-style fashion.
DJ Tony, aka Bus Stop creator Darren Smith, said: “The Bus Stop Show is a fantastic night reliving the cheesy disco days of the 1970s. It’s all about great fun, good memories and an excuse to wear big hair and even bigger flares. It will be a real blast from the past for all those people who remember going to LAs on Tuesday nights back in the nineties. All but two of the original cast are still in the show and the night promises to be an unforgettable experience.”
Kate McKee, Marketing Executive at Beverley Racecourse, said: “We’re really excited about our 70s Racenight. I used to love going to LAs on Tuesdays for Bus Stop – it was always great fun and I have some amazing memories from that time. Now we’re getting the gang back together – on a Tuesday night, of course! The show starts after the last race and we want to see everyone letting their big hair down and reliving their disco days!”
DJ Tony and his glamorous dancers Tricity and Crystal hopped on the X46 bus from Beverley Bus Station to the racecourse to promote the return of Bus Stop. Tony Loveshaft and his collection of 70s throwbacks will be spinning the decks behind the wheel of his trademark VW Beetle in the Premier Enclosure from 8.35pm – 15 years after their last show in Hull.
The evening will also feature fun challenges, a special 70s cocktail menu and bottles of Pina Colada for the best 70s outfits. With the nostalgic night expected to be popular, racegoers are advised to book in advance. Doors open at 4pm with the first race at 6pm and last race at 8.30pm.
