The Good Companions Stage Society are at Derby Guildhall Theatre stage next week with their tribute to long-running TV music show Top of the Pops.

Top of Our Pops sees the group celebrate some of the best-selling hits and best-selling artists and bands seen on the show which spanned more than 40 years.

Barbara Ashmore, the show’s producer, said: “This original idea came from one of our members who noted that 2016 was the 10th anniversary since the show, ended, so our tribute is to the 40 years of popular music.”

Dave Adey, musical director, added: “The show is full of really popular tunes starting with all the songs performed on the first ever Top of the Pops in 1964.

“But it’s not all pop chart songs, this show offers a selection of what are considered top love songs, dance crazes, songs from musicals and even, oour take on songs which became hits following the Eurovision Song Contest.

The show takes place from Tuesday, April 12 to Saturday, April 16 at 7.30pm each night, plus a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

The Saturday evening will be a gala performance in aid of Derby Kids Camp.

Tickets priced £12 and £9 are available now on 01332 255800, www.derbylive.co.uk or www.goodcomps.co.uk
