A stellar line-up of stars will take to the stage at next year's Let's Rock the Moor festival at Marsh Meadow in Cookham.

The Advertiser can exclusively reveal this year's event will include Spandau Ballet singer Tony Hadley, known for tracks including Gold and True, and Ultravox frontman and Band Aid co-organiser Midge Ure.

Synthpop star Howard Jones and R&B girl group Five Star have also been confirmed in what organisers are calling the best line-up yet.

The other acts set to perform are soul three-piece Imagination, Scottish new wave group Altered Images, boy band Brother Beyond and Zambian dance act Rozalla.

Surprise guests will also appear at the event, which is set to be held on May 18 next year.

Another big name is expected to be added to the line-up this week.

Last year, acts including Billy Ocean, Toyah and Heaven 17 wowed crowds of more than 6,000 revellers at the family-friendly festival.

Next year's event will also include a second stage to introduce local bands, children's entertainers from the BBC and ITV and an 80s themed play area.

A much bigger circus and plenty more toilets will also be available, along with stalls, food and bars.

Tickets go on sale today and are available online or from selected shops including the Stationery Depot in Cookham and Sheargold Music in Maidenhead for £29 for adults or £16 for children.

Tickets for families of two adults and two children are £78.

The majority of proceeds from the event go to charities including the Maidenhead-based Link Foundation and rugby charity Wooden Spoon.
