Dig out the mini-skirts and flower shirts and relive the 60s
They are considered by many to be the greatest musical decade ever. And now people living in the Tamworth area of Staffordshire are being invited to party like it's the 1960s. The period forever known as the swinging sixties is coming to the newly re-opened Tamworth Assembly Rooms in February, as the greatest hits from the flower power era are brought back to life with the stage production, California Dreamin'. The show features the songs from one of the most popular groups from the golden age of the 60s, The Mamas and The Papas, who brought us smash hits including, 'Monday Monday', 'Dedicated To The One I Love', 'I Saw Her Again Last Night' and 'California Dreamin''. They will be swinging onto the Assembly Rooms stage on Thursday 13 February at 7.30pm.
Hear some of the music from the flower power era
California Dreamin' will instantly transport the audience back to one of the most iconic periods of the sixties and the flower power era where peace, love and psychedelia flowed freely to the great music of Scott McKenzie, The Flowerpot Men, Barry McGuire, The Lemon Pipers, The Turtles, Sonny and Cher, and The Beatles. So, get your miniskirts and flower-power shirts ready and don't miss this opportunity to relive the summer of love in one great live show.
