A celebration of Mod music is set to rock The Playhouse to mark the 50th anniversary of the Mod scene.

All Or Nothing celebrates the music of iconic Mod band The Small Faces and you could be there on opening night thanks to our competition.

The musical follows the story of the four members of the band and how they cope with being famous.

It may seem like the millionaire lifestyle is glamorous but they soon discover the amount of corruption and betrayal which comes with it.

This is unlike any other musical and is sure to make you think as well as enjoy the soulful music.

Hits like Whatcha Gonna Do About It, All Or Nothing, Tin Soldier and Lazy Sunday will all make an appearance.

The Mod scene did not make its way into British culture until the 1960s, but the now iconic genre is said to have influenced musicians such as Oasis, Blur and The Arctic Monkeys.

This musical’s visit to Weston is part of a UK tour and is not to be missed.

All Or Nothing will be at the Playhouse, in High Street, from September 30 to October 2, with performances at 7.30pm each night and 3pm on October 1.

Tickets, priced £25, are available from 01934 645544, or www.theplayhouse.co.uk
