I'm discovering Southampton along with you!
Event: -
It's the 1950s, Parts of London are still rubble and mess after the bombings of the blitz, and Teddy and Josie are out for a night on the town. Teddy is the award winning musical from Tristan Bernays with original music by Dougal Irvine about two young teens in a world of rebellion and rock and roll. Teddy is at the Nuffield Southampton Theatre Campus from the 26th of February till the 3rd of March.

Teddy boys and teddy girls were part of a British subculture defined predominately by their style of clothes. Arising in the 1950s, their style came from the fashions of the Edwardian era of drape coats and stovepipe trousers. This style was specifically a teenage trend - it started as a from of youth rebellion but it ended up being synonymous with rock and roll.

Teddy is an exploration of London, youth and the 1950s. The fictional band Johnny Valentine and the Broken Hearts kick things off and play through the show. There are some great original songs as well as well known rock and roll favourites. The band helps to bring Teddy and Josie's bombed out London to life. It's half theatre production, half life music gig.
