About this Event

Intelligent, amusing, poignant, full of music, politically engaged: a warm-hearted and generous book.

The Human League and Heaven 17 were among some of the most pioneering bands of the 1980s, with Martyn Ware having played an integral role in each of their numerous successes. Described by David Bowie as ‘the future of music’, Ware toured with the likes of Siouxsie and the Banshees and Iggy Pop before having the colossal hit albums Penthouse and Pavement and The Luxury Gap with Heaven 17.

In Electronically Yours, Martyn takes us through his incredible route to stardom; from his austere but sometimes - happy upbringing in the heart of Sheffield and close teenage friendship with former-bandmate Phil Oakey, to the white-hot experimentation in the ‘Synth Britannia’ era and his production career, which allowed him to work with some of the world’s greatest singers, including Tina Turner and Sananda Maitreya. A proud socialist, Martyn writes poignantly about politics - how it can be a soulful, personal, moral duty - and its role in his music creation and Britain today. With meditations on culture, humour, travel and sport, Martyn also shares his love of 60s films, explains why Venice is the most beautiful city in the world, and reveals how Sheffield Wednesday has forever been his first and eternal passion.

Electronically Yours sees Martyn talk candidly for the very first time about his extraordinary journey. Discover amusing anecdotes, raw confessions, and moving reflections of a life well and truly lived at the height of the music industry. A book by the multi-talented Martyn Ware.

We have two ticket options available: * Event Only and *Event with Discounted Book Combo deal - books will be available for collection at the Festival.

Our event will be followed by a dedicated signing event with Martyn. RRP books will also be available for purchase on the day.
