RESIDENTS can be taken through a glitzy, fun and sometimes silly journey through the music, TV, fads and fashion that have shaped British pop culture since the music charts began in 1952.
‘Blast from The Past’ takes place at 6.30pm next Saturday (February 27) at Fairfield Village Hall.
Each dance performed on the evening has been inspired by a key event or trend that has impacted on life in British living rooms throughout the years – there are 60 short dances set to the 60 top tracks from the last 60 years.
England’s World Cup win in 1996 is accompanied by Tom Jones singing ‘Green Green Grass of Home’, whilst 1981, using Don’t You Want Me by the Human League as the accompanying song, harks back to Charles and Diana’s wedding day.
‘Blast From The Past’, in true British style, will also feature a quiz that invites the audience members to team up for so they can get stuck in to the fun.
There will be familiar rounds, brain teasers and challenges from iconic British TV game shows (such as Family Fortunes) and there will be prizes.
Performers Spiltmilk Dance are billed as ‘sticking a big fat ray of sunshine into the world of contemporary dance, bringing fun and intelligence in equal measure, and entertaining audiences with its distinctive brand of intricate yet charming dance’.
Tickets, which are on sale from Fairfield Post Office, are £8.50 for adults and £6.50 for under 16s £6.50.
