For full Rules and Terms of entry read below – and good luck!



TAKE ON ME is a show from Dante or Die that is taking place after hours in leisure centres across the UK. Set in the 1980s world of headbands and leg warmers, it follows a lonely woman coming to the gym for the first time and a lifeguard who has never saved anyone.

Live musicians belt out classic 80’s hits including I Wanna Dance with Somebody and Flashdance, and lead you through the changing rooms, gym, an aerobics class and finally the pool. You are a fly on the wall for one extraordinary day in these people’s lives, as characters from 80’s films appear out of nowhere to change the course of fate.

A guest cast of local people have been rehearsing in November to play various parts including the Karate Kid, the centre receptionist and pool spectators who suddenly break into a rendition of Holding Out for a Hero. You’ll never look at your leisure centre in quite the same way again!

All this work has only been possible thanks to the support and partnership with Medway Council’s Sports and Arts Teams – huge thanks to all who gave space, time and support.


A limited number of tickets are still available for Take On Me at Hoo Sports Centre on Saturday 1 December (4pm & 7pm) and Sunday 2 December (4pm & 7pm) – book via the Medway Tickets Live website.

This performance is recommended for ages 14+. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Contains strong language and brief full frontal nudity.

“Lovely, lovely warm-hearted night out on Saturday, what a beautiful, joyful hug of a show”
