Spirit of Woodstock

How is it possible to attend, here in Ashburton, the world’s largest festival, with over 500,000 all together on a Northern NY State dairy farm, in 1969?
How is it possible to be on the beach opposite the Kennedy Space Centre watching the launch of Apollo 11; be part of an anti-Vietnam war riot; be a chopper pilot ferrying the world’s most famous musicians upstate; be the captain of a Russian nuclear submarine off Cuba’s coast; to be a musician stepping out onto the stage at Woodstock? Simple.

Award-winning Something Underground Theatre brings you The Spirit of Woodstock.
Over two wild and immersive hours. The politics, the conflicts, the music, the protests, the moon landings, the civil-rights movement, the adverts, the drugs, the music, the musicians and the personalities, all imbued with the soundscape of this incredible era. Come and enjoy with your picnics, wrapped up in tie dye, ready to be taken back to a time that was happening, golden and groovy, baby.

Bring a picnic. Bar available. There’ll be chairs, but feel free to bring your own.

The venue is a secret field in Ashburton – it’s a beautiful place, with great views. Directions will be provided. It’s a 10-15 minute walk, uphill, from Ashburton Arts Centre. There is limited parking close to the stage available for those with mobility limitations – please email boxoffice@ashburtonarts.org.uk to arrange this.

If bad weather is forecast, the shows will be moved inside. You’ll receive emails from tickets@wegottickets.com and/or boxoffice@ashburtonarts.org.uk to let you know about this on the morning of 27 August – please make sure these addresses won’t be treated as spam.
