A RADIO legend has been announced as headliner for Whitehaven Alive, with a night of the best music and reminiscing in store.

Chris Moyles is bringing his brand new '90s Hangover Tour to Whitehaven Harbour on Friday, September 9.

Chris will take the audience on a journey back to the '90s, celebrating a brilliant decade of music.

Whether you sided with Blur or Oasis or put on your bucket hat and white gloves to go raving, this show 'leaves no musical stone unturned'... and with Chris Moyles behind the decks, punters are being told to 'expect the unexpected'.

Moyles presented the breakfast show to an audience of 8 million people for a record breaking eight-and-a-half years and remains the longest serving breakfast host in Radio One’s history.

Chris will be a part of Whitehaven Alive, a brand-new festival which is to be held from September 9-11 featuring famous faces, live entertainment, food and drink villages, Cumbrian producers, and street theatre across the stunning Whitehaven Harbour.
