We’ve revisited the summer of 1997, when the Radio One Roadshow came to town and the Journal’s photographer, Simon Horn, was on hand to capture the flavour of the day.

Thousands of people crammed the beach, jostling with each other for a better view of the stage, eager to see performances from top musicians, such as Take That’s Mark Owen and John Power of Cast.

Do you recall the party atmosphere of the day? Perhaps you are pictured in the crowd while the BBC’s Simon Mayo introduced the various acts. We would love to see your pictures and hear your memories from when the roadshow came to Exmouth. You can share your pictures with the Journal by going to www.iwitness24.co.uk and uploading them to the East Devon nostalgia category or you can email Alex Walton at: alex.walton@archant.co.uk
