The sharpest Mod of all was known as a ‘FACE’. The Small Faces encapsulated all that is Mod, a unique blend of taste and testosterone, neat, clothes obsessed and street-wise. But these cult sophisticates shared another passion, their dedication to Rhythm ‘n’ Blues. This quintessentially British ‘Mod’ Musical celebrates the unique sound of the iconic ‘60s Mod band, The Small Faces. Featuring the music of the Small Faces, including an arsenal of brilliant hits like Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Lazy Sunday, Tin Soldier, Sha La La La Lee, Itchycoo Park and of course All Or Nothing Booking & Enquiries: 01733 207239

JOSEPH AND HIS TECHNICOLOUR DREAMCOAT
Stamford Corn Exchange , Stamford

The biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colours comes alive in the musical retelling. Joseph - the favourite son of Jacob - is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core. Soon he finds himself belonging to Potiphar, whose wife makes advances toward Joseph and ultimately land him behind bars. However, news of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the hilariously Elvis-like Pharaoh. Soon, Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to second-in-command. Eventually Joseph’s brothers find themselves unknowingly grovelling at the feet of the brother they betrayed. As they fail to even recognise him, Joseph tests their integrity. He ultimately reveals himself and the brothers are reconciled.

KAST OFF KINKS
The Key Theatre, The Embankment

Tickets for this performance are £21 (inc fees) The iconic British rock band, The Kinks, are often cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time. Their first hit, You Really Got Me, in 1964, broke new ground with driving power chords and Dave Davies’ distorted guitar sounds, and created a template for many bands to follow in a rock and roll development which led variously to heavy metal, new wave and grunge. Later work saw the band’s style change to more melodic songs, highlighting Ray Davies’ lyrical and observational skills in songs like Sunny Afternoon, Dead End Street and Waterloo Sunset. Although the band’s popularity in the UK waned in the 1970s, they found new commercial success, particularly in the USA, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and returned to the UK top 20 in 1983 with Come Dancing. The Kinks continued as a recording and gigging band until 1996, when the Davies brothers went their separate ways with solo careers. During the band’s 32-year career, there were some changes in personnel, Pete Quaife, the original bassist, was replaced by John Dalton in 1969, and keyboard player John Gosling was added in 1970. Following the two Johns’ departure in the late 1970s, Jim Rodford became the Kinks’ bassist (after a short tenure by Andy Pyle) and Ian Gibbons took over on keyboards. Original drummer Mick Avory left the band in 1983, to be replaced by Bob Henrit. Mark Haley played keyboards for a period in the late 80s/early 90s. The Kast Off Kinks formed in 1994 to keep the music playing on, and it is what the name implies - the original line-up consisted of the band that played Lola (apart from Ray and Dave) - Avory, Dalton and Gosling - together In 2009, the line-up became the band that played Come Dancing - Avory, Gibbons and Rodford (respectively the Kinks’ longest-serving drummer, keyboard player and bassist) - still with Dave Clarke covering for the Davies brothers. Jim then became very busy playing with The Zombies and Argent, so John Dalton was persuaded out of retirement to stand in for him and now plays very regularly with The Kast Off Kinks .

JOSEPH AND HIS TECHNICOLOUR DREAMCOAT
Stamford Corn Exchange , Stamford

The biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colours comes alive in the musical retelling. Joseph - the favourite son of Jacob - is blessed with vivid dreams that foretell the future. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph endures a series of adventures which challenge him to his core. Soon he finds himself belonging to Potiphar, whose wife makes advances toward Joseph and ultimately land him behind bars. However, news of Joseph’s ability to interpret dreams sparks the interest of the hilariously Elvis-like Pharaoh. Soon, Joseph is out of jail and well on his way to second-in-command. Eventually Joseph’s brothers find themselves unknowingly grovelling at the feet of the brother they betrayed. As they fail to even recognise him, Joseph tests their integrity. He ultimately reveals himself and the brothers are reconciled. This truly timeless Old Testament tale is set to a multitude of musical genres, spanning from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock and roll. The Professional production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has been the subject of at least 12 different cast albums with ‘Any Dream Will Do’ voted the Broadway Song of the Year in 1981 and awarded an Ivor Novello Award in 1991.

MACBETH BY PETERBOROUGH MASK THEATRE
Peterborough Central Park, Park Road

Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a play well known to many of us perhaps even going back to our school days, where we suffered the slings and arrows of English teachers’ endless analysis of the power crazed Monarch and his various treacheries, his over ambitious queen and her descent into madness, the Wyrd Ssters’ prophesies, and exactly how a man could qualify as being “no woman’s son”. The play is brought to life in Peterborough Central Park this summer (11 - 15 July) when Mask Theatre brings you our annual Shakespearean offering. We’re pleased to announce that we’re also touring Macbeth to three exciting locations, Moonhenge at Wood Walton, Crowland Abbey and for the first time, The Waterton Arms in Deeping St James the following week (20 – 22 July). The stunning backdrops in our tour venue locations will add another layer of dramatic tension to the performance. Visually Crowland Abbey will be exciting and atmospheric, reminiscent of old Scottish castles, while Moonhenge will set the three Wyrd Sisters on their blasted heath perfectly. The beautiful beer garden at the Waterton Arms, Deeping St James, a new venue for our tour, promises at the very least a decent interval drink. Action packed and full of emotion, the Shakespearean play takes no prisoners. You are welcome to make an evening of it and bring your picnic (please note, not applicable to the Waterton Arms, where food is available in the pub). As ever, even on a balmy evening the air feels chilly towards the end of the evening so we recommend you some warm clothing For wet weather plans or to check for cancellation please call 07542 174 653 for a recorded message stating whether or not the play is going ahead.

Peterborough Cathederal, Peterborough

Two ta;emded former Peterborough Cathedral musicians: Katie sings with prestigious choirs including the BBC Singers, and Andrew is Director of the Royal School of Church Music. Peterborough Cathedral’s popular series of free summer recitals has begun, on Wednesdays at 1.00pm. City centre workers, shoppers and anyone who is visiting Peterborough on a Wednesday is invited to enjoy the 45 minute recitals, performed underneath the tower inside the Cathedral. This beautiful setting, combined with music from some of the UK’s most accomplished performers, is a wonderful way to pause for thought and lift your spirits at lunchtime. The recitalists this year include the harpist Eleanor Turner (2nd August), who is Head of Harp at Birmingham Conservatoire and a passionate ambassador for the instrument. Her London debut, aged 15, was broadcast live on Classic FM. The Cathedral organ's new concert pitch means that it can now be used with other instruments and several of the recitals take advantage of this capability. At various times during the series it is played in combination with the solo voice, guitar, trumpet and violin. The recitals are free of charge and no ticket is needed. The series is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and donations are invited to help cover the full costs.

MACBETH BY PETERBOROUGH MASK THEATRE
Peterborough Central Park, Park Road

Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a play well known to many of us perhaps even going back to our school days, where we suffered the slings and arrows of English teachers’ endless analysis of the power crazed Monarch and his various treacheries, his over ambitious queen and her descent into madness, the Wyrd Ssters’ prophesies, and exactly how a man could qualify as being “no woman’s son”. The play is brought to life in Peterborough Central Park this summer (11 - 15 July) when Mask Theatre brings you our annual Shakespearean offering. We’re pleased to announce that we’re also touring Macbeth to three exciting locations, Moonhenge at Wood Walton, Crowland Abbey and for the first time, The Waterton Arms in Deeping St James the following week (20 – 22 July). The stunning backdrops in our tour venue locations will add another layer of dramatic tension to the performance. Visually Crowland Abbey will be exciting and atmospheric, reminiscent of old Scottish castles, while Moonhenge will set the three Wyrd Sisters on their blasted heath perfectly. The beautiful beer garden at the Waterton Arms, Deeping St James, a new venue for our tour, promises at the very least a decent interval drink. Action packed and full of emotion, the Shakespearean play takes no prisoners. You are welcome to make an evening of it and bring your picnic (please note, not applicable to the Waterton Arms, where food is available in the pub). As ever, even on a balmy evening the air feels chilly towards the end of the evening so we recommend you some warm clothing For wet weather plans or to check for cancellation please call 07542 174 653 for a recorded message stating whether or not the play is going ahead.

SUMMER LUNCHTIME RECITALS WITH VICTORIA GREEN GUITAR AND STUART NICHOLSON ON ORGAN
Peterborough Cathederal, Peterborough

This unusual combination of instruments will perform a variety of music, from a baroque concerto to a contemporary fandango, with a dash of catchy jazz. Peterborough Cathedral’s popular series of free summer recitals has begun, on Wednesdays at 1.00pm. City centre workers, shoppers and anyone who is visiting Peterborough on a Wednesday is invited to enjoy the 45 minute recitals, performed underneath the tower inside the Cathedral. This beautiful setting, combined with music from some of the UK’s most accomplished performers, is a wonderful way to pause for thought and lift your spirits at lunchtime. The recitalists this year include the harpist Eleanor Turner (2nd August), who is Head of Harp at Birmingham Conservatoire and a passionate ambassador for the instrument. Her London debut, aged 15, was broadcast live on Classic FM. The Cathedral organ's new concert pitch means that it can now be used with other instruments and several of the recitals take advantage of this capability. At various times during the series it is played in combination with the solo voice, guitar, trumpet and violin. The recitals are free of charge and no ticket is needed. The series is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and donations are invited to help cover the full costs.

MACBETH BY PETERBOROUGH MASK THEATRE
The Waterton Arms, Deeping

Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a play well known to many of us perhaps even going back to our school days, where we suffered the slings and arrows of English teachers’ endless analysis of the power crazed Monarch and his various treacheries, his over ambitious queen and her descent into madness, the Wyrd Ssters’ prophesies, and exactly how a man could qualify as being “no woman’s son”. The play is brought to life in Peterborough Central Park this summer (11 - 15 July) when Mask Theatre brings you our annual Shakespearean offering. We’re pleased to announce that we’re also touring Macbeth to three exciting locations, Moonhenge at Wood Walton, Crowland Abbey and for the first time, The Waterton Arms in Deeping St James the following week (20 – 22 July). The stunning backdrops in our tour venue locations will add another layer of dramatic tension to the performance. Visually Crowland Abbey will be exciting and atmospheric, reminiscent of old Scottish castles, while Moonhenge will set the three Wyrd Sisters on their blasted heath perfectly. The beautiful beer garden at the Waterton Arms, Deeping St James, a new venue for our tour, promises at the very least a decent interval drink. Action packed and full of emotion, the Shakespearean play takes no prisoners. You are welcome to make an evening of it and bring your picnic (please note, not applicable to the Waterton Arms, where food is available in the pub). As ever, even on a balmy evening the air feels chilly towards the end of the evening so we recommend you some warm clothing For wet weather plans or to check for cancellation please call 07542 174 653 for a recorded message stating whether or not the play is going ahead.

The recitalists this year include the harpist Eleanor Turner (2nd August), who is Head of Harp at Birmingham Conservatoire and a passionate ambassador for the instrument. Her London debut, aged 15, was broadcast live on Classic FM. The Cathedral organ's new concert pitch means that it can now be used with other instruments and several of the recitals take advantage of this capability. At various times during the series it is played in combination with the solo voice, guitar, trumpet and violin. The recitals are free of charge and no ticket is needed. The series is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and donations are invited to help cover the full costs.

THE BEACHED BOYS
Stamford Corn Exchange , Stamford

The Beached Boys were founded in 1999 from the remnants of a Beach Boys inspired band called Endless Summer The idea to form a new band originated from a request from a television company for them to appear in a programme hosted by Ann Robinson based on American themes. The success of this appearance led them to rehearse a set of songs to take on the road. This was an instant success as bookings for shows and private functions. Their accurate harmonies and tight mix of two guitars, bass, drums and keyboard create the nostalgic feel of those fun days from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Listen in amazement as Dave, Paul, Kevin, George and John recreate the super summer sounds of Brian, Mike, Carl, Al and Dennis, who made up the inspirational and very different California group The Beach Boys. Hits like 'Little Deuce Coup', 'I get Around', 'Surfin Safari' and 'Help Me Rhonda' should get you yearning for the sun and surf. With their neatly trimmed harmonies, the Beached Boys magically capture the original sixties surfing sound of the Beach Boys. In the sixties, at the height of their original popularity, the Beach Boys propagated their own variant on The American Dream, painting a dazzling picture of beaches, parties and endless summers.
