Originally formed in 1980 by Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware (founding members of Human League) the name Heaven 17 was originally just a project of their production company British Electric Foundation.
However, once Glenn Gregory joined the line up Heaven 17 quickly evolved into a fully fledged band. They have released 8 albums, most notably The Luxury Gap, which reached Number 4 in the UK Albums Chart.

However, it’s the hit singles, such as “Temptation”, “Come Live with Me”, and “Crushed by the Wheels of Industry” which fans will instantly recall.

We welcome the band to our 70’s & 80’s Day at Tonbridge Castle.
