Formed in 1965, Mandy and the Girlfriends are famed for being the first all-female, rock n roll group in the UK. In May ‘the Girlfriends’ are reforming for one final time, for a very special An Audience With the Girlfriends at the popular Kardomah 94 venue, in their hometown of Hull.
In October 2017 the Hull group appeared on The One Show with Geri Horner, when the former Spice Girl met the group and celebrated their unique place in British Music History.
Original group members Hilary, Merle, Karen, Lynda and Lesley will be back together playing live, sharing stories and answering questions about how they blazed a trail across Europe, at the height of rock n roll.
The Girlfriends will be joined on stage with cast members of Different For Girls – the musical inspired by Mandy and The Girlfriends – as She Productions the all-female company behind the hit show, announce the musical’s forthcoming U.K tour.
