QUAD in Derby will be celebrating England’s footballing success with a live screening event.
World Cup ‘66: Minute By Minute is set in the Summer of 1966, when the eyes of the world were on London, its music, fashion and football, as the England team prepares for the World Cup final.
Fifty years on, music, history and football combine into a one-off event re-telling the story of the historic day. Bringing together compelling match footage, fascinating stories, appearances from football heroes, and songs from 1966 - performed live by some of today’s artists alongside legends who sang them first time around.
Told in real time, minute by minute, World Cup ‘66: Minute By Minute will be broadcast live to cinemas from The SSE Arena, Wembley, yards from where the original game was played.
The event will be presented by Jeremy Vine and Louise Minchin with appearances from sporting heroes including Sir Bobby Charlton, with music from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, James, Squeeze, Lemar, The Squires, Shaun Escoffery, Chris Farlowe, Reef, The Troggs and the cast of hit musical Sunny Afternoon.
