By Jodie Nesling

One of Britain 's most iconic bands have announced they are to play the Margate Winter Gardens next year.

Ska legends The Specials will embark on a national tour following the release of their first album of new music in 37 years, Encore - due for release next February.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of The Specials and the legendary Two-Tone label in Coventry in 1979, and also marks 10 years since the band reformed to play some of the most vital and joyous live shows in recent memory.
