MORE than two decades after his chart-topping heyday, Nik Kershaw is preparing to go back on the road - and revisit the mid-80s.

The Ipswich-born singer/songwriter - best known for hits including The Riddle and Wouldn't It Be Good - will be appearing at two nostalgia festivals in the summer.

Kershaw, now 50, will be joining fellow 80s acts including Kim Wilde, Howard Jones, Paul Young, Curiosity Killed The Cat and Heaven 17 at a Here and Now show at Blickling Hall, near Aylsham, on July 19.

He will also be reprising his greatest hits at Retrofest in Lanarkshire, Scotland, on August 30, on the same bill as The Bangles, 10CC, Kajagoogoo and The Christians.

Electro-pop icon Kershaw retired from the stage in the late 80s and became a silent songwriter for other acts.

He started recording again in 1999 and has released three further albums, including last year's You've Got To Laugh.
