SATURDAY NIGHT COMEDY
We're delighted to officially announce the return of comedy to Sunshine Festival for our 10th birthday next August. The first act we're announcing was one of the best comedic acts we've had over past years... Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back, the fabulous... Lee Lard!
Now in his 14th year and with over 3000 performances under his belt, Lee Lard is still being voted the most popular comedy tribute act in the UK!
Lee's outstanding tribute to Bolton's funny man Peter Kay has now been enjoyed by thousands of fans throughout the UK and abroad.
Lee Lard's Peter Kay Tribute Show is as popular now as ever and continues to 'sell out' wherever he goes.
Delivering his own hilarious ‘Peter Kay’ style of stand-up comedy, Lee appeals to audiences of all ages.
Lee started as a comic back in 1993 and turned pro in the year 2000. In the early days, working in a comedy duo called Lean & Lard. After learning the craft and serving his apprenticeship in the tough northern clubland for 10 years, Lee made the move to go alone. After being invited to work alongside Peter Kay on the biggest Comic Relief video ever in March 2005 this new comedy career was born!
We can't wait to see him perform live again at Sunshine!

SATURDAY & SUNDAY 60'S LEGENDS
MIKE PENDER'S SEARCHERS
Following the success of The Beatles and capitalising on the Mersey Sound came The Searchers. In 1963 they quickly established their own distinctive sound and dedicated following, with a 12 string lead guitar and harmonies which anticipated the sound of The Byrds. 'Sweets For My Sweet', 'Sugar & Spice' and 'Needles & Pins' were their three number one hits, their total world sales exceed over 30 million.
Mike Pender's Searchers evolves directly from his history with The Searchers, after he parted ways with the band in the early '80s. He has hand picked the cream of musicians and vocalists' in an attempt to recreate the original sound of The Searchers, of whom he was a founding member in 1959. Mike Pender's Searchers is an act that has toured the length and breadth of the world since, constantly reminding audience of the classic sound that they created.
the swinging blue jeans
With stalwarts Alan Lovell (lead vocal/guitar) and Pete Oakman (bass/vocals) the group have become synonymous with having a great time and working up a party atmosphere that will have everyone up on their feet and dancing.
The Swinging Blue Jeans stormed the charts worldwide with Hippy Hippy Shake and other major hits including Good Golly Miss Molly, You're No Good and Don't Make Me Over.
Alan Lovell and Pete Oakman front the band. Pete was leader of the Bruvvers and wrote Picture Of You for Joe Brown, so you will also hear a taste of their other memorable hits.
