Kick off your Sunday shoes for Footloose

PUBLISHED: 07:00 30 June 2016




The toe-tapping and fun-loving Footloose musical is back – and you could watch its opening night in Bristol thanks to our competition.

Former Pop Idol star Gareth Gates reprises his role as playful Willard and Maureen Nolan returns as the Reverend’s wife Vi.

The story follows city boy Ren, who much to his dismay is forced to move to the small town of Beaumont.

Little does he know his problems have only just begun, with Beaumont having banned dancing after a tragedy which hit the town four years earlier. Ren is determined to change the local clergyman’s strict policy, but courts further trouble when he falls for the priest’s daughter Ariel.

This feel-good, singalong musical boasts a host of songs made famous by the hit 1980s film.

Footloose will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from August 1-6, with performances at 7.30pm each night and at 2.30pm on August 3 and August 6. Tickets, priced between £17.90-49.40, are available from
