Let the good times roll

A brand new version of That’ll Be the Day returns to Hull City Hall in October. This show has been touring for three decades, a feat in itself, and is rated by many as the UK’s number one rock ‘n’ roll variety production. The show is highly acclaimed for its stunning live entertainment value and is described as an outstanding celebration for all true fans of the golden era of popular music.

This latest production features a new line-up of smash hits songs from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s guaranteed to stir those dancehall memories, all performed live on stage.

Originally established on the cabaret circuit in the late 1980s, That’ll Be the Day began playing regional theatres in the early 1990s. Now it performs more than 200 shows a year to capacity audiences across the UK.

Trevor Payne, who first created the show back in 1986, still directs, produces and stars in the production today. He spends at least six months planning and preparing each new show every year to create an unforgettable night of nostalgia, laughs and rock ‘n’ roll.

Tickets for That’ll Be the Day at Hull City Hall on Tuesday, October 24th are from £23.50 and are on sale now.
