FANS of pop legends Simon and Garfunkel are being invited to learn more about the duo’s 50 year history.

Featuring West End, award-winning performer Dean Elliott, who recently played Buddy Holly in 'Buddy - The Musical', and a full cast of talented actor- musicians, the Simon and Garfunkel Story will transport the audience back to the groovy times of the 1960s.

The show is being presented at Derby Assembly Rooms at 7.30pm on Friday, February 7.

Organisers promise the audience: “The story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as rock and 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 large projection screen, the show features both original photos and film footage while a full live band perform all their hits including Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, Sound of Silence and many other much loved tunes.

If you're a fan of their music then this is probably an evening not to be missed.

Tickets are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
