Remember the Sixties? Or know the special music that emerged on the British pop scene during the decade?

For one night only all the original hits performed by four of the most popular artistes of the 60s starring The Marmalade, Herman’s Hermits, Chris Farlowe and Steve Ellis’ Love Affair are at Lowestoft’s Marina Theatre later this year.

Described as the ultimate sensational 60s show there will be over 25 hits performed by four of the most influential chart toppers of their time.

Irresistibly commercial the Marmalade scored in the UK charts in May 1968 with Lovin’ Things and later, number one with Ob La Di Ob La Da, another classic Reflections Of My Life.

Herman’s Hermits proved to be a dominating force worldwide. From 1964 the band chalked up over 23 top 20 singles, including Mrs Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, There’s A Kind Of Hush, Something Is Happening and I’m Into Something Good.

Chris Farlowe still performs all over the world to this day. His hits include classics like Out Of Time, Handbags and Glad Rags, Let The Heartaches Begin, and Reach Out I’ll Be There.

Formed in 1967, Steve Ellis’ Love Affair stormed into the charts with Everlasting Love. At the time Steve was only 17, but with his distinctive powerful voice he and the band notched up further hits, Rainbow Valley, Bringing On Back The Good Times and A Day Without Love.

The show, hosted by Alan Mosca from Freddie and The Dreamers, is on Sunday, December 1. The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available from the box office on 01502 533 200 or online @
