Blast From The Past

From Elvis to Selfies; a fast paced race through seven decades of British pop culture.

"Sheer unserious delight."

Audience Member

Jam-packed with hits, Blast from the Past is a fast-paced race through seven decades of the blockbusters and bestsellers we all remember, and the fads and fashions we might prefer to forget.

Set to a soundtrack of chart toppers from 1952 to the present day, the show honours British pop culture and it’s ability to unite us all in weird and wonderful ways.

Somewhere between a dance performance, sketch show, TV gameshow and the ultimate compilation album, Blast from the Past will have you feeling nostalgic, singing along, laughing out loud and playing a swift game of pass the parcel!

Blast from the Past toured to over 50 venues across the UK between Autumn 2015 – Spring 2017 to great acclaim.


Absolutely faultless. I wish it could have gone on longer
