Fans of the 1960s can enjoy a night of hit songs and nostalgia during a musical extravaganza at The Playhouse in Weston.

Bringing On Back The 60s is coming to the High Street venue on May 12, starring New Amen Corner.

Special guests Mike d’Abo and multi-award winning Nancy Ann Lee from Little Miss Sixties will also perform on the night.

New Amen Corner are one of the hardest working and most highly respected acts on the 1960s circuit in the UK and across Europe.

With multiple tours under their belt, the master-revivalists provide an ultimate journey through the decade which defined pop music.

After Paul Jones left to pursue a solo career, d’Abo was the front man for Manfred Mann from 1966.

With Mike on board, the band released a string of hits including Just Like A Woman, Semi-Detached Suburban Mr James and Mighty Quinn.

After the group disbanded, Mike composed Build Me Up Buttercup for The Foundations and Handbags & Gladrags – which was a massive hit for Chris Farlowe.

Lee, also known as Little Miss Sixties, has supported Marti Wilde, Eden Kane and Mike Berry on tour, while also winning nominations and accolades at The British Country Music Awards.

Tickets for the show are priced £21 and can be booked from or on 01934 645544.

The Mercury has teamed up with the theatre to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets to the show.
