Through The Decades With Roy Orbison And Buddy Holly

This activity is completed or marked as expired


Born within a few months of each other, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly grew up in the same part of Texas. They each recorded their early work in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, even at one point recording the same songs, An Empty Cup (And A Broken Date) as well as Youve Got Love, both of which were written by Orbison.

Both artists brought a distinctive Texan influence to their music and yet, through their individual writing styles, their unique sounds were born.

Roy Orbison went on to write more than 20 albums across 4 decades, with tracks including the well known 'Only the Lonely' and 'Crying' and, in 1987, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

Buddy Holly, despite his tragically short life, more than proved his writing talents with a catalogue including Peggy Sue and True Love Ways. In 2010 he was awarded 13th place in Rolling Stone magazines '100 Greatest Artists Of All Time'.

Darren Page and Marc Robinson, with their individual careers dedicated to Orbison and Holly respectively, have performed all over Great Britain and around the world. Now they come together to bring you an uplifting two hour show that will entertain you with all the hits, but with a few older and more modern tracks thrown in too.

Wear a face covering

By law, face coverings must continue to be worn in most indoor public places (including indoor communal spaces, workplaces and public transport) unless you are exempt for specific circumstances. This includes cinemas, dance halls, discotheques, libraries and public reading rooms, museums and galleries, indoor theatres, comedy clubs, concert halls and nightclubs. This means that face coverings must be worn in the majority of indoor cultural settings.

Some exclusions apply, including for those who are exempt from wearing a face covering. Face coverings can be removed when eating or drinking, but must be worn otherwise. There is no requirement that a person must be seated at a table when eating or drinking.
