ORGANISERS of Ely’s hotly-anticipated Party on the Hill event have added four new acts to the line-up.

90s stars D:Ream, Snap! and N Trance have been announced for the show, taking place on August 31, and they will be joined by Cheryl Baker, Jay Aston and Mike Nolan, formerly of Bucks Fizz, with their new group OBF.

The groups will be joined by former X Factor winner Matt Cardle, girl band Atomic Kitten and boy band Blue, who are headlining the event in Ely’s Cherry Hill Park.

The man behind the show Rupert Russell, said: “I’m trying to put together a line-up that spans three generations so that there is something for everyone, for all tastes.

“There is more to come, though, so expect some exciting news to come.”
