Songs by some of the biggest artists signed to an iconic American record label will be performed in Weston this month.

The Greatest Hits Of Motown: How Sweet It Is will be at The Playhouse in High Street on January 19.

The production is a foot-stomping celebration of the likes of Lionel Richie, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder and The Jackson Five.

Other featured artists include Smokey Robinson, The Four Tops and Marvin Gaye.

As well as the performers’ top class vocal talent, the show includes professional choreography and a brilliant live band.

How Sweet It Is has earned fantastic reviews for the performances so far so the night promises to be entertaining for both new and old Motown fans.

The show will begin at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £17-26, are available here.
