Whatever your taste in popular music, there’s something to tickle your tastebuds at Stevenage’s Gordon Craig Theatre over the next few days.

Taking top billing next Tuesday night are one of the biggest names to grace the 1960s charts – and this is no nostalgic reunion, because The Searchers never stopped gigging and are still hard at work today.

With a back catalogue that includes hits like Sweets for My Sweet, Needles and Pins, Don’t Throw Your Love Away and When You Walk in the Room their place in pop history is secure.

But they still love performing for their fans all over the world and they’ll be rolling back the years from 7.45pm when they book in to the Lytton Way venue.

As well as the hits, there will be stories and reminiscence about their long career.

A string of tuneful attractions at the venue kicks off on Thursday night with the touring troupe now officially acclaimed as the world’s number one tribute team to the Eagles.

The Illegal Eagles are famous for note-perfect renditions of the hits made famous by vocalist Don Henley and the rest of the West Coast crew who produced classics like Hotel California, Take It Easy, Desperado and Take It to the Limit.

On Friday the clock turns back to the 1960s again to Let’s Hang On, a jaunty jukebox of a show with the hits made famous by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.

The talented team who put the show together scored a bit hit when they appeared at the Gordon Craig last year, and they’re back by public demand.

If you were planning to take in the Muthas of Metal show planned for Saturday night, then think again – that show has had to be postponed.

But it’s back to evergreen hits on Sunday night as another globetrotting jukebox show serves up the songs made famous by Buddy Holly and the Crickets.

You can find out full details about ticket availability and more about the shows by calling the box office on 01438 363200 or visiting www.gordon-craig.co.uk.
