How is it possible to attend, here in Hay, the world's largest festival, with over 500,000 all together on a Northern NY State dairy farm?
How is it possible to be on the beach opposite the Kennedy Space Centre watching the launch of Apollo 11; be part of an anti-Vietnam war riot; be a chopper pilot ferrying the world's most famous musicians upstate; be the captain of a Russian nuclear submarine off Cuba's coast; to be a musician stepping out onto the stage at Woodstock?
Simple. Award-winning Something Underground are bringing you their latest, open air stage show, The Spirit of Woodstock..... Over two wild and immersive hours. The politics, the conflicts, the music, the protests, the moon landings, the civil-rights movement, the adverts, the drugs, the music, the musicians and the personalities, all imbued with the soundscape of this incredible era.
Come wrapped up in tie dye, ready to be taken back to a time that was happening, golden and groovy, baby.

The Children of the 70’s…saw life change radically. Now you can too.
From the creator of The Spirit of Woodstock…
The next chapter…From Space Invaders to Star Wars, glam rock to punk, flares to safety pins, Wilson to Thatcher, Apollo to Skylab & The Shuttle, OPEC to queues at petrol stations. From Bloody Sunday to Power Sharing, power cuts to 3 day weeks, disco… to the winter of discontent. From main frames to Apples, post strikes to email. Old money to decimal, past VAT, into the EU & up the butter mountains. From The Cold War to the Cod Wars to The Godfather and more….…with music, soundscapes & platform shoes to remind you of good times, & bad.
A highly dynamic & energetic theatre collage of the stories, the time, the people, the music. A romp through the 70’s.
"Outstandig Show.... masterly…such integrity….both hilarious and chilling by turns. Brown’s extraordinary fluency & quick-change of voices, body language & peaked caps entertains first & foremost, informs last of all…. mesmerising… why (isn’t) this virtuoso writer, director & performer already a national icon? There’s no greater writer/performer working in Brighton, or Sussex.” Fringe Review. May 2022
