An award-winning tribute act will take the audience back to the 1970s, and the Mercury is offering you a chance to be there for free.

Arrival – Hits Of ABBA will relive some of the best and most-loved tracks of the band which topped the charts worldwide from 1974 to 1982.

Four decades after the Swedish pop legends took to the stage and became international music sensations, this tribute act will pay homage to the Hall Of Famers.

Arrival have seen worldwide fame of their own with their international, multi award-winning show which has sold out in over 20 different countries worldwide since 1995.

The high energy show will feature a catalogue loved songs including Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Super Trouper and Voulez Vous.

ABBA formed in 1972 in Stockholm, Sweden by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

They became on of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music.

The group also brought home Sweden’s first Eurovision Song Contest win in 1974 when they performed Waterloo.

Non-stop choreography, dazzling costumes and stunning visuals will feature in the show which will aim to take theatre-goers on a journey back to the band’s heyday in the 1970s.

Arrival – Hits Of ABBA will be at The Playhouse Theatre, in High Street, at 7.30pm on April 12.

Tickets, priced £23.50, are available from 01934 645544 or at

The Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to the show.

This competition will close at 10am on March 30.
