An ‘uplifting’ celebration of some of the best music from the 1970s will be held in Weston next month.

The Counterfeit Seventies will be at The Playhouse in Weston on August 10.

Following hugely successful tours with The Counterfeit Sixties, the new show will include some of the biggest songs from a new decade covering genres ranging from glam rock to new wave.

Featuring the likes of Slade, Sweet, T. Rex and The Bay City Rollers, the four-piece band are sure to have the audience singing and dancing away.

The band members are all talented musicians and have supported or worked with some of the biggest artists of the time including The Searchers, The Troggs, The Ivy League and The Tremeloes.

As well as the great music the show boasts authentic outfits and video footage of the bands themselves.

A spokesman said: “Coupled with a stunning light show, costumes from the period and video footage of the bands and events from that era, makes this one show you don’t want to miss.

“So whether you want to sit back and take a trip down memory lane or get your glad rags on and boogie on down, this uplifting show will take you on a nostalgic trip back to the 70s.”

The Playhouse date is part of a national tour which will run throughout the rest of this year and 2019.

Tickets, priced £20-21, are available online or 01934 645544.
