Musical sensations Simon and Garfunkel recorded their first number 1 hit single, The Sound of Silence, half a century ago.

Featuring West End, award-winning leading man Dean Elliott (Buddy Holly in ‘Buddy - The Musical’) and a full cast of talented actor- musicians, ‘The Simon and Garfunkel Story’ takes you back through the ‘groovy’ times of the 1960s.
