The Lindisfarne Story
DateSat 9 Mar
VenueThe Civic - Assembly Room
The Lindisfarne Story is an affectionate and enthusiastic celebration of one of the UK's most original and successful groups. Written and performed by former front-man Billy Mitchell and founder member Ray Laidlaw, the show takes the audience on a trip through fifty years of the Geordie group's history from it's 1960's beginnings in the pubs and clubs of Tyneside to the concert halls and festivals of the present day.
The story is told through the groups classic songs, rare and unseen video, audio clips and private photographs linked together with tall tales and scurrilous gossip. From Whitley Bay to Frisco Bay, from Rothbury to Glastonbury, the Lindisfarne Story is a brilliant evening's entertainment.
Since 2015, the Lindisfarne Story has toured the UK with over 120 concerts to critical acclaim. It has been performed in theatres, arts centres and festivals plus a history making show on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and another on a North Sea cruise. Wether you're a rabid Lindisfarne fan or a just a lover of '60's and '70's music, this show is for you.
