Ska legends Madness will headline an outdoor concert in Carlisle’s Bitts Park in the summer of 2019.

Madness are one of the best-known Ska bands in the UK. They have released countless hits over the years including ‘Our House’, ‘It Must Be love’, ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘Night Boat To Cairo’ and ‘House of Fun’.

The band have received two Ivor Novello awards in their multi decade spanning career. In 1983 the band first picked up the Best Song Award for ‘Our House’ and in 2000 they received a further accolade for their Outstanding Song Collection.

With eleven studio albums to their name, and seven of these reaching the Top 10 in the UK Album Charts (including their latest, ‘Can’t Touch Us Now’ from 2016), Madness have had an enduring influence on pop culture.

They are often regarded as a British institution and still continue to play shows to thousands of fans. The previous Glastonbury performers add Bitts Park to their list of upcoming 2019 shows.

Special guests to be announced.

Doors 3pm.
