90’s pop superstars Steps are to perform in Essex next summer.

The band whose hits include ‘5,6,7,8” and ‘Deeper Shade of Blue’ will be playing at Castle Park in Colchester on Saturday June 16 2018.

Steps will be supported at the gig by popular 00s boy band, Blue.

Organisers expect that there will be a large crowd for the gig .

Councillor Tim Young, Portfolio Holder for Business and Culture, said: “The Council has been working closely with the Liz Hobbs Group, who are promoting the tour nationally, and I am excited that Steps are playing at Castle Park in 2018.

“To have an international superstar group playing at Castle Park is a great endorsement of the venue and the facilities we offer – and a fantastic opportunity for fans in Colchester to enjoy a spectacular concert so close to home!”

Tickets for the summer concert will go on sale on November 17 at 9am.

The Harvest Centre, home of Brandon Full Gospel Church, held its Christmas meal on Saturday evening and this year invited people who had made a difference in the community.
