A medley of popular acts from decades gone by will roll back the years in Weston-super-Mare next month, promising a memorable night for fans to bask in the nostalgia.

The Sensational 60s Experience will take the audience back in time at The Playhouse, in High Street, on October 14 at 7.30pm.

The show boasts a packed line-up of stars from the 1960s, allowing the crowd to reminisce and enjoy their favourite songs from their youth.

Topping the bill is Mike Pender, who was founding member of Merseyside pop rockers The Searchers.

Pender has enjoyed a career spanning seven decades, and he is sure to delve deep into his back catalogue of hits from his days with The Searchers and as a solo performer.

Tunes like Needles And Pins and What Have They Done To The Rain? Are certain to get an outing at The Playhouse.

Also performing is blues rock singer Chris Farlowe who, like Pender, has enjoyed a long and successful career.

Farlowe has churned out dozens of albums over the year, but he is perhaps best known for his 1966 number-one hit Out Of Time.

Manchester beat rock band Herman’s Hermits will also feature on The Playhouse stage, and their unforgettable hit I’m Into Something Good will have the hundreds in attendance singing along.

Tickets, priced £29, are available from 01934 645544 or online at
