The songs of a legendary American pop duo will be recreated on a South West stage this summer, promising to delve deep into their brimming collection of hits.

The Carpenters Story will take over the stage at Bristol’s Hippodrome, in St Augustines Parade, on September 1 at 7.30pm.

The Carpenters, brother and sister duo Richard and Karen, were one of the most popular acts in the 1970s and 1980s – selling millions of records worldwide.

The pair were the seventh-best selling act in the UK in the 1970s, scoring chart successes with tunes like Please Mr Postman, Yesterday Once More and Close To You.

And this show, which boasts the musical talents of Claire Furley and Phil Aldridge, will take fans on a tour of The Carpenters’ back catalogue.

Tickets for this show, priced £24.50-28, are available on 08448 717615 or online.
