Excavate is currently working with the South Holland Centre and Transported to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the moment when Spalding launched the Summer of Love with one of the greatest rock concerts in musical history.

At the heart of this project is a funny, playful, and energetic hour long performance, full of great music and based on the memories and stories of those who were there. This is a show about pirate radio stations and coffee shops; about Jimi Hendrix dangling bedsheets out of the window of his room in the Red Lion; of the football ground becoming a camp for a hippy invasion; and of the magical moment when flower power came to the Tulip Bulb Auction Hall and Spalding was the coolest place on Planet Earth. Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, pay what you think the performance is worth at the end.

If you were lucky enough to be at Barbeque 67, if you missed out on Barbeque 67, if you’ve never heard of Barbeque 67 but love the music of Pink Floyd, Cream, Geno Washington or Jimi Hendrix, then this specially created show is one that you will not want to miss!

For tickets call 01406 362500, email longsuttonbarns@gmail.com or come into the Barns in person.
