Supersonic 70s show comes to Wellingborough

Published Tuesday, 25 March 2014

Celebrated tribute show Supersonic 70s will be whipping up a sea of nostalgia in Wellingborough on Saturday 12 April with a special performance in aid of the Mayor’s charity fund.

The six piece live band has taken the UK by storm, being described as the ultimate 70s tribute show and generating critical and public acclaim. The band's night at The Castle is a first for Wellingborough and all profits will be donated to good causes.

The set list covers some of the biggest classics from the era, including hits from Queen, The Carpenters, ELO, 10cc, Wings, Andrew Gold, Donna Summer, David Essex, Abba, Sweet, Suzi Quatro, David Cassidy, T. Rex, the Bay City Rollers, and many more.

The Mayor of Wellingborough, Cllr Graham Lawman, said: "I'm absolutely delighted that Supersonic 70s is coming to Wellingborough. The show is so much fun and really professional. No tapes or backing tracks, just six incredibly talented musicians and singers who put on a live performance to remember, complete with genuine 70s costumes and glitzy backdrops.

"They've been getting audiences on their feet at every venue they've been to, with people dressed up in their 70s gear and singing along to every word. It's a really great night out, a huge 70s party, that will appeal to all ages. Whether people want to take a trip down memory lane or weren't even born in the 70s, audiences can't help but join in and I'm really looking forward to it! Plus every ticket that's sold will make a real difference to some good causes, as profits will be added to the Mayor's charity fund."

Tickets are still available for the energetic show, which will be coming to The Castle in Wellingborough on Saturday 12 April. Tickets cost £15 each and are available from the box office on 01933 270 007 or online at http://castletheatre.co.uk/

The Mayor of Wellingborough organises fundraising events and activities throughout the mayoral year. Cllr Lawman's charity fund will be distributed to good causes, including Help for Heroes and the Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Service and local charities, at the end of his term of office.
