(Marion Loudon, Mali Sewell, Barry Thomson, Dawn Selby & Jason Andrew)

This year celebrates the 45th anniversary of the 'Three Days of Peace & Music' celebration, Woodstock, where 32 acts performed to an audience of 400,000 young people. It took place from August 15 to 18, 1969, on Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm in the New York town of Bethel. Credence Clearwater Revival were the first act to sign a contract and this persuaded other big acts to follow suit. The Rolling Stone magazine listed Woodstock as one of the “50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll”.

Celebrate the music of Woodstock at Rhumbelow Theatre with The Reals, featuring the talents of Barry Thomson (guitar/vocals), Dawn Selby (keyboards / vocals), Mali Sewell (drums/vocals), and Jason Andrew (bass guitar/vocals). Popular and vivacious Marion Loudon (vocals/percussion) will join The Reals for this production.

Watch audio visual excerpts from Woodstock on new screens, the latest upgrade at the Rhumbelow Theatre. Dress up in Woodstock style and stand a chance of winning the Best Dressed prize.
