Winner of 4 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Best Actor in a Musical, Sunny Afternoon, the new musical which tells the story of the early life of Ray Davies and the rise to stardom of The Kinks, opened at the Harold Pinter Theatre in October 2014.

Fifty years ago, The Kinks were sitting at Number One in the UK charts with their fifth single ‘Tired of Waiting For You’. The band’s popularity has not faded since the 1960s, with crowds of all ages filling the Harold Pinter Theatre night after night.

Featuring some of The Kinks’ best-loved songs, including You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset and Lola, Sunny Afternoon marks the 50th anniversary of the band’s rise to fame.
