Derek Watts

Sing-along history of music from liverpool


Synopsis

In the 60s, Liverpool rivalled Los Angeles and London as the musical capital of the world. In this historic port city, a vibrant, noisy, and above all youthful culture produced singers and bands who defined the soundtrack of generation.

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, Liverpool comes to Lewes in an unashamedly nostalgic celebration of the songs of the The Beatles. Gerry and the Pacemakers, Billy Fury, The Searchers, Cilla Black, and many more. It's another change to hear the old 45's but this time it will be chiefly YOURSELVES! Yes come and sing-along to the songs you loved after all we were all teenagers once!

But it was not just about the music! come and enjoy too the city's raucous, earthy, humour and the work of the Liverpool poets as Derek Watts pilots the Theatre Club's very own "Ferry 'Cross the Mersey".

Come and let your hair down if you've still got any and show all those boring oldies who moan "Nostalgia isn't what it used to be" that there is still life after the bus pass.
