The ultimate show for any Ska fan, join us as we go 'One Step Beyond' to celebrate the iconic 2Tone records and the artists who brought this sound to the world in this high-energy, feel good show.

Prepare to rock-steady and get ready to embark on a non-stop musical feast for the senses with a huge array of hits from the likes of Madness, Bad Manners, The Specials, The Selecter, The Bodysnatchers and many more.

Combined with a nine-piece live band formed from some of the finest musicians across the country, Too Much Too Young aims to bring the energy and authenticity of this influential movement directly onto the stage. A show that brilliantly explores how society, politics, and racial equality in both eras overlap, making it both relevant and engaging for audiences of all ages.

“A must-see show for any Ska lover.”
