Toyah reunites with her co-presenters from Look! Hear! on Saturday 14 September in a special event organized by Kaleidoscope.

Made at the Mill: A Celebration of Pebble Mill and BBC Birmingham focuses on the golden years of BBC Birmingham, operating from the custom-built Pebble Mill studios. This event celebrates the place, its people and programmes in an affectionate tribute which sees screenings of specially selected programmes.

Toyah joins the event at 2pm when she reunites with Chris Phipps and John Holmes in a panel discussion which looks back at the Midlands music and arts show Look! Hear!  which celebrated contemporary pop and rock culture plus a screening of an episode from 1978.

The event will also include a 17.00 screening of the BBC Second City First television play Glitter which saw Toyah make her major television debut alongside Phil Daniels and Noel Edmonds. The play made whilse Toyah was still at drama schools sees a young girl break into the Top Of The Pop studio and dreams of becoming a pop star. Glitter was written and directed by Tony Bicat and first transmitted on 28 November 1978. The master tapes were thought lost for a long time but recently rediscovered and restored.

The event is free admission and full details can be found online
