Jack Up to bring the swinging sixties to Shanklin this summer

A chance to escape back to the sixties this August!

Owing to very popular demand, Jack Up Events are bringing back the good times with a very special ‘Jack Up The 60s’ evening at Shanklin Theatre on Friday, August 13th as they continue to celebrate all things retro.

Multi-talented 5-piece band The Zoots will bring the unforgettable sounds of the iconic decade to life, taking audiences on both a visual and musical journey. This is THE 60s show that’s been wowing audiences around the world, selling out and headlining venues from the London Palladium to Old Trafford.

Having recently won the 2021 Global Entertainment award for Best Classic Pop Rock Music Act, The Zoots will be marking the birth of British pop culture with the hits of The Beatles, The Stones, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, The Kinks, The Four Seasons and many more.

Event Organiser Sarah Moss said; “It’s great to be back! As theatres prepare to re-open their doors to welcome audiences after a whole year of closure, we are so excited to be throwing our arms around and supporting Shanklin Theatre. This wonderful venue is incredibly important to our local Island community and we’re keen to help play our part in facilitating the return of much-missed cultural experiences.

The Zoots performed to sell-out crowds at what was to be our last event in February 2020 and were a phenomenal success. Having played over 1000 shows and toured over 35 countries, they are quite simply the best live band in town.
Their 60’s show is packed full of wall to wall hits and accompanied by stunning visual effects ensuring an impressive and authentic journey of discovery …or a trip down memory lane!”
