A Powerful Evening of Live Performance, Audio and Imagery at The Atkinson

Simon & Garfunkel – Through The Years, written and performed by Bookends takes place on Saturday 31 May, at 7.30pm at The Atkinson.

Watch Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel give their personal accounts of their rise to fame, and listen to wonderful live performances by Bookends.

Hear hits like Mrs Robinson, Homeward Bound, Bridge Over Troubled Water and The Boxer in this must-see show Simon & Garfunkel – Through The Years.

Simon and Garfunkel met as youngsters in a school production of Alice in Wonderland. At this time neither Paul Simon nor Art Garfunkel could have imaged the career that lay before them. Although their time together as recording artists was short, their impact on the music industry worldwide was great and their music would live on for decades.

Now, follow the story of the American duo from the first meeting, through the troubled waters and to their reignited friendship.

The show is the most authentic sounding show of its kind, with incredible live performances bound together with video clips, audio snippets and imagery the show is both powerful and moving.

With narration taken from the Victoria Kingston book ‘Simon & Garfunkel – The Definitive Biography’, the show touches on the highs and lows of an incredible friendship and career.

About The Atkinson
The Atkinson is Southport’s beautiful new home for music, theatre, art, poetry, literature and history, right in the middle of Lord Street in Southport. Significant investment has been made in refurbishing the stunning 19th century buildings, to create a really welcoming multi art-form venue with a strong contemporary feel.
The Atkinson offers an exciting and varied destination for families, cultural tourists and arts enthusiasts alike, with a full day and night time offer. Wile the day away visiting the new shop, that sells gifts and contemporary crafts from regional makers and then relax in the Bakery, choosing from a selection of artisan bread sandwiches, cakes and sharing platters. You can even take little bit of The Atkinson home with you from the delicatessen. Wonder through the major exhibitions and see performances from some of the UK’s foremost musicians, actors, performers and companies, films, family activities and much more.
In October 2014 The Atkinson becomes something even more exciting for visitors, with the opening of the museum which will tell the story of Southport and Sefton as well as the area’s dramatic maritime history. It will also be the new home for the Goodison Egyptology Collection, a remarkable collection of archaeology that has not seen for over 40 years.
