A celebration of an iconic decade of music is coming to Weston in July.

The Bootleg Sixties is a two-hour show packed with vintage pop performed by The Overtures, who were once described by piano powerhouse Sir Elton John as ‘the best band of their kind in the world’.

Pop music’s greatest decade will be relived through the inclusion of classic fashions, newsreels and iconic video footage and will feature hits by The Kinks, The Doors, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Beach Boys and many more on an unforgettable journey back in time.

The 1960s’ impact on society is even now being felt throughout the world and its music, fashion and popular culture have left an indelible mark which may never be equalled.

The show is in town for one night only at The Playhouse on Saturday July 25 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £22 or £24 and can be purchased from the box office on 01934 645544, or by searching for Bootleg Sixties at
