A change of pace on Sunday (17th Jan) as The Simon and Garfunkel Story takes centre stage. Following it’s West End success at the Leicester Square Theatre, London last year, The Simon and Garfunkel Story is currently the biggest and the most successful touring theatre show celebrating the lives and career of Folk/Rock sensation Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel.

It tells the story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as Rock n Roll duo 'Tom and Jerry', right through their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert.
Using a huge projection screen, the show features 1960’s photos and film footage whilst a full live band perform all their hits including Mrs Robinson; Cecilia; Bridge Over Troubled Water; Homeward Bound; Sound of Silence and many more.
