Brighouse Arts Festival

Biggest Music Star to Ever Perform in Brighouse

Posted on Updated on

The Brighouse Arts Festival takes place between 3-13 October. The Festival has managed to book Kiki Dee & Carmelo Luggeri for a concert in October. Tickets are on sale now.

Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri will be coming to Brighouse on Thursday 10 October 2019 to perform ‘An Acoustic Journey’ at St. Martin’s Church.

Festival Director, Matthew Harrison-Lord, said “It is brilliant to bring such a world renowned star to Brighouse, a Calderdale exclusive. This year we are aiming to the spotlight on Brighouse raising the profile of our festival and the town. Ticket sales are already amazing so don’t delay to book.”.

2019 marks Kiki’s 56th year in the music industry and has cemented her status as one of the UK’s finest and most revered vocalists. Dee has performed alongside Elton John with their Number 1 duet “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” at Live Aid 1985 and at Madison Square Garden in New York City. For almost two decades, Kiki and Carmelo have been touring their spellbinding acoustic live show across the UK and Europe. Performing in this stripped back fashion allows each of their exceptional talents to shine through and create a wonderful and warm sense of intimacy for the audience.

Join Kiki and Carmelo for an acoustic journey of stories and song which include unique covers of songs by artists such as Kate Bush and Frank Sinatra and of course Kiki’s own hits “I Got The Music In Me”, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, and the stunning “Amoureuse”.

John Buxton, producer of the festival said that “Although Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri are the headline act for the Brighouse Arts Festival in October, we have other huge well known acts booked to help put the spotlight on Brighouse, but we have to keep these top secret for now, so watch this space”

Steven Lord, chair of the organising charity, said “We’re a group of volunteers that run the festival and it’s brilliant that we have managed to get such a high profile name to come to Brighouse. We shall continue to reach new levels with the Arts Festival this year. More volunteers and sponsors are needed, so please ring 01484 722462 if you can help.”

The Brighouse Arts Festival runs from October 3rd to 13th and tickets are on sale now, online or at the Harrison Lord Gallery and Ryecorn Wholefoods. Visit for more information.
