Ticket to Ride – 1960s Weekend

15-17 June 2018

Get your ticket and take a ride back to the 1960s; a Magical Mystery Tour of groovy music, psychedelic fashion, and a radical real ale festival that will give you the Hippy Hippy shakes! We would love to see you in fab sixties gear!

We will be enjoying the sounds of the sixties throughout the weekend. Celebrating the age of pirate radio and the radical new sounds that filled the airwaves with DJ Dave; playing authentic 60s tracks from his extensive collection of original vinyl. Make sure you visit DJ Dave and get your requests played!

DJ Dave will be joined by Bony Maronie, bringing hits from his time spent with some of the Rock and Roll greats plus a collection started when he worked in HMV’s flagship store on Oxford Street in the 60s.

There will be live music; kicking off with The FAB Beatles on Friday evening, The Zoots will be performing their fantastic Sounds of the Sixties show, plus local acts Nik Fish and Go Tell Alice will be helping you relive the swinging sixties.

Devon Diesel Society will be serving beers, ciders, wines and prosecco from their famous bar. Period vehicle displays, trade stands to browse, and, of course, plenty of heritage steam and diesel trains throughout the day, and into the evenings on Friday and Saturday!
