Blast From The Past is a fast-paced, laugh out loud dance performance and gameshow celebrating seven decades of British pop culture, it’s jam-packed with chart hits to remember, and fads and fashions to forget.
It is fun-fuelled entertainment and sheer, unserious delight which takes audiences on a glitzy, fun, and sometimes silly, journey through the music, TV, fads and fashions that have shaped British pop culture since the recorded music charts began in 1952.
Each year is celebrated with a dance inspired by a key event or trend that impacted life in British living rooms that year, and is accompanied by the top selling song from the year. 60 short dances set to the top 60 tracks from the last 60 years.
The England’s World Cup victory is celebrated in 1966, accompanied by Tom Jones singing Green, Green Grass of Hom’, while 1981 harks back to Charles and Diana’s wedding day, as Don’t You Want Me by The Human League plays.
In true British style, Blast From The Past invites audiences to team up and get stuck in with the fun, as the evening includes familiar rounds, brain teasers and challenges from iconic British TV game shows (such as Family Fortunes) – there will be prizes!
The show is brought to the Glebe Field Centre at Crich by Spiltmilk Dance – one of the UK’s leading professional contemporary dance troupes – on behalf of the Live and Local organisation on January 28, at 7.30pm.
