Nik Kershaw at 8 Day weekend

On this day (31st October) in 1983, Nik Kershaw released his first single ‘I Won’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me’
The original release only charted at 47, but it was the re-release in 1984 which catapulted it up the charts which went on to becoming his highest charting song peaking at number 2 in the UK charts.

Nik has performed at the 8DayWeekend in 2011 and 2014 alongside Go West and Chesney Hawkes. All photo’s are from 2011 thanks to a behind the scenes look from the Walden local with Nik happily meeting some of the locals, and with Go West’s Richie Drummie.

What are your fondest memories of the Saffron Walden Carnival – 8DayWeekend? And who would you like to see on stage next year?
