NEW musical Carnaby Street, which swings into the Alban Arena next week, is set against the backdrop of London’s West End in the sixties.

It can be seen at 7.30pm from Monday, June 10, until Saturday, June 15, when there is a 2.30pm matinee as well.

Directed by Bob Tomson (Blood Brothers, Dreamboats and Petticoats) and designed by Matthew Wright (Evita, La Cage aux Folles), Carnaby Street tells the story of Jude, a working class boy from Liverpool, new in town and armed with nothing but his guitar and his dreams of fame and fortune.

The show follows the highs and lows, the passion and heartbreak of his journey in pursuit of stardom.

As a celebration of an era renowned for its famous clubs, trendy fashions and eccentric characters, it features the timeless music of The Beatles, Manfred Mann, The Animals, The Searchers, The Who and other high profile bands

The cast includes Verity Rushworth, of Emmerdale, Hairspray, and The Sound of Music, as Penny Lane, Tricia Adele-Turner, who appeared in Legally Blonde, Blood Brothers and We Will Rock You as Jane and Aaron Sidwell in the role of Jack.

Tickets are £17.50, available from the Arena box office on 01727 844888 or go to
