Win tickets to Sunny Afternoon and a signed copy of Americana

To celebrate the opening of Sunny Afternoon we’re giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show and a signed copy of Ray Davies’ autobiography, Americana.

July 30th, 1966, as Bobby Moore lifts the world-cup trophy, a hundred thousand fans in Wembley are singing Sunny Afternoon in unison; the number one hit which rocked the nation that summer. But how did that happen? And how did The Kinks end up not only invading America but also being banned from playing there at the height of their career?

Ray Davies’ extraordinary life story told with Music and Lyrics by Ray Davies, a new Book by Joe Penhall, Direction by Edward Hall and Design by Miriam Buether, Sunny Afternoon explores the rise to stardom of The Kinks. Set against the back-drop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative 50s and riotous 60s, this production explores the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of Britain’s most iconic bands and the irresistible music that influenced generations.

To win answer the following question correctly:

What year did The Kinks’ song You Really Got Me reach number 1 in the UK charts?

a. 1964
b. 1962
c. 1966
