In an exclusive prequel to their hit ‘Cool Britannia’ show, The Foxes explore the music from the late 50s and early ’60s that inspired droves of young Brits to teach themselves guitar.

They went on to write the soundtrack of a generation, and turn the UK from a pop backwater to a rock superpower.

From the mid ’50s, a music revolution was brewing in postwar Britain. Drawn from a melting-pot of skiffle, rock ’n’ roll, American R&B and even calypso, the seeds of a new, homegrown British pop sound were being sown.

Discover the varied influences that shaped Cool Britannia through the Swinging Sixties and beyond. Hear how stateside superstars like Elvis, Buddy Holly and the Everlys shaped early British rock from the likes of Cliff and the Shadows, Billy Fury, Joe Brown, Tommy Steele and Johnny Kidd.

Join us as we tell their story, join the dots and whirl you through an evening of the hippest, most switched-on sounds, daddy-o!
