Rock and rollers are raising the roof

A LIVE show coming to the Kenton Theatre next weekend is inviting music fans to step

A LIVE show coming to the Kenton Theatre next weekend is inviting music fans to step back in time to the golden era of Fifties and Sixties rock ’n’ roll.

Lipstick on Your Collar is aiming to lift the roof off the New Street venue on Sunday, October 23.

Running from the birth of rock ’n’ roll through to the beat group sounds of the British Invasion and beyond, expect tight harmonies, excellent vocals and dancing in the aisles.

The two-hour show includes hits from the likes of Connie Francis, Brenda Lee, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Beatles, The Ronettes, Cliff Richard, Cilla Black, Sandi Shaw and many more.

It will be performed by a full live band, including multi-instrumentalists and vocalists from many touring and West End productions.

The audience will be taken on a fun-filled musical journey through the years — from Rock Around the Clock in 1955 through to the Beatles and the resulting British Invasion in 1964 — backed by nostalgic video footage throughout.

Lead singer Nicola Seeking-Smith said: “We’re really excited to be bringing Lipstick on Your Collar to Henley. Our band contains some of the country’s top musicians and singers, all of whom are massive fans of the era, so we’re extremely proud of the show. The Fifties and Sixties is such an iconic time and we hope our portrayal of this fantastic music will have people singing along and dancing in the aisles!”

Based in Berkshire, Lipstick on Your Collar originally formed as a six-piece band in 2010. After touring up and down the country they developed their act into a full-scale stage show.

Showtime at the Kenton Theatre is 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £21 for adults (with concessions £19) and can be booked at or by calling (01491) 575698.
