Cranleigh Arts are celebrating their 40th anniversary! The venue’s mission is “to enrich, entertain and inspire our community” and over the last four decades they have done just that, bringing a fantastic array of arts and entertainment to Cranleigh.
Founded in the 1970s, the charity is celebrating in true 70s style with the Supersonic 70s Show. Tickets for this fundraising event include a meal and a complimentary drink, so come on down on Saturday 18 May, 7pm and join the party!
Led by the ‘Catsuit Wonder Girl’ vocalist Janey Bombshell, the Supersonic 70s Show delivers a power packed spectacle guaranteed to get you dancing. With an impressive set list to suit all ages, the emphasis is on great hit songs from this golden era of music. The band will perform some of the biggest classic hits from the 70s! From the towering majesty of Queen, The Carpenters and ELO, the band also perform stunning renditions of chart toppers by 10cc, Wings, Andrew Gold and Donna Summer’s epic ‘Macarthur Park’. From David Essex, Abba, Sweet, Suzi Quatro, Boney M, The Osmonds, David Cassidy, Elton John to Kiki Dee, T-Rex and Olivia Newton John, not forgetting the Bay City Rollers – you cannot help but join in the fun!
The band’s highly energetic and visual presentation is completed with genuine 70s costumes with all the glitz and glam you would expect from this colourful era. The audience are invited to come in 70s dress for a chance to win the best dressed competition. A complimentary drink and chicken or veggie-in-a-basket meal are included in the ticket price of £25.
