80’s Hit Singer Owen Paul Joins Line-Up For Hale Barns Carnival

“This year is most definitely our biggest line-up to date, and I’m excited to announce that we can add yet another brilliant performer to the programme. I must admit having seen Owen Paul perform at another festival. His energy on stage was infectious and just perfect for Hale Barns Carnival 2019. This is going to be a year to remember for sure!”

Hale Barns Carnival returns for its third year this Summer, and today (Thursday 14 February) organisers have announced another performer to the star-studded line-up.

Due to phenomenal demand, another headline act has been added to the line-up – singing star Owen Paul – who shot to fame with the song My Favourite Waste of Time – will join fellow 80s singers Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp and Nathan Moore from Brother Beyond, and disco and soul legends Odyssey and The Real Thing.

Owen Paul will join Martin Kemp and Nathan Moore on the B&M Stage for an 80s-themed concert on the Sunday night.

Scottish Owen Paul was a teenage apprentice for Celtic, but swapped football pitches for music and stages and later became the lead singer with Glasgow band Venigmas.

However, it was as a solo artist that he enjoyed his biggest chart hit, reaching number 3 in the charts in 1986 with his version of the classic, My Favourite Waste of Time. Owen is now a regular performer at many big 80s music festivals.
