Expect fire breathing, laser lights and the history of rock condensed to three hours as a set of Riddings rockers take to the stage in Somercotes.

Junction, other wise known as brothers Daniel and Benji Heenan and drummer Ryan Mcfall, are set to take Somercotes on a guided of pop music through a thrilling set at the Somerlea Park Community Centre on Friday, December 21.

The show will feature songs from every decade from the 1950s through to the present day, complete with costume changes that will see the band, all from Newlands Road in the village originally, appear in the guise of everything from a teddy boy to a glam rocker.

The last time the trio played the Somerlea centre in June the show sold out.

This time,bassist Daniel, 25, says there will be a few Christmas surprises .

He said: “It’s going to be bigger and better than the last time. We had a brilliant turn out and everyone really enjoyed it.

It made us feel so brilliant that everyone appreciated how much work we put into it.

“This one will get everyone in the Christmas spirit.”

The boys are set to play a list of hits dating back to the likes of Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley in the 1950s, through to modern classics by Kings of Leon and the Killers - with some festive favourites for good measure.

Between each era of rock a narrator will appear to usher in the next musical milestone - and give the trio a chance to change costumes. The boys have even prepared a special Christmas-themed entrance video for Friday’s show.

Joiner-by-day Daniel continued: “It’s got something for everyone this show!”

Tickets are available on the door for £5. Doors open at 7pm.
