Be Bop A Lula

Be Bop A Lula

In 1960, American rockers Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent flew in from the States and were joined by British heartthrob Billy Fury for the UK's very first multi-artist rock'n'roll tour.

Reviewers were appalled by the on-stage antics. Audiences screamed their approval. British youth culture was born!

Relive these seminal concerts in the company of incredible singers and a band tighter than a pair of your tightest drainpipe trousers.

And there's more, Buddy Holly's live tours were equally responsible for introducing rock'n'roll to the UK.

From Cochran's legendary guitar riffs, Vincent's menacingly moody stage presence, Fury's smouldering looks and soaring vocals and Holly's good-time rock'n'roll anthems, Be Bop a Lula is a real doozer of a stage show.

Stacey Dooley

Stacey Dooley has firmly established herself as one of the most recognisable faces on British TV. Alongside her hugely popular BBC investigative series, in which she covered a diverse range of topics from across the world, the documentary maker and author of the Sunday Times bestseller, On the Frontline with the Women Who Fight Back, is also the presenter of BBC1's This Is My House; BBC2’s DNA; Glow Up for BBC3, and W's Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over – and lest we forget, our 2018 Strictly champion.

Following several sell-out UK tours, Stacey is heading back on the road to celebrate the publication of her new book, which explores the mental health crisis in Britain and its particular impact on young people, inspired by Stacey’s two most recent documentaries on mental health.

In conversation for these limited events, Stacey will open up the conversation about mental health in young people, to challenge the stigma and stereotypes around it. Having worked in collaboration with mental health experts and charities, Stacey will responsibly share the stories of young people in the UK directly affected by mental health issues, in order to shine a light on life on the mental health frontline and give a voice to young people throughout the UK who are living with mental health conditions across the spectrum.

Stacey will also touch on related, broader topics which she has tackled in her documentaries – poverty, addiction, identity, the pressures of social media – and look back on the stand-out moments and interactions from her wide-reaching career.

Join her for what promises to be a thought-provoking, inspiring and informative evening. With a chance to try your own hand at journalism and ask Stacey the questions, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Presented by Fane.
