WESTON will be alive with some of the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll sounds next month – and you could be there to join the party.

Be Bop A Lula will celebrate the music of Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Billy Fury and Roy Orbison when it comes to The Playhouse on August 1.

Cochran and Vincent first came to the UK for a tour in 1960.

Despite dying in a car crash that same year, Cochran’s music inspired artists including The Beatles and he is renowned for hits such as Summertime Blues, C’mon Everybody and Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie.

Vincent is widely known as a rock ‘n’ roll rebel and gained widespread adoration among fans for songs including Be Bop A Lula, Say Mama and Race With the Devil.

Fury and Orbison, meanwhile, need no introduction.

Fury wrote his debut album, The Sound Of Fury, whereas Orbison’s hits like Crying and In Dreams mean he is a strong addition to this stellar line-up.

It is left to Gavin Stanley and Lars Young, backed by musicians, to recreate the music and lives of these hugely popular singers.

Be Bop A Lula will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, on August 1 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £22 for an adult and £20 for concessions, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or online via
