Summer 1966, and the eyes of the world are on London –the music, the fashion and the football – as the England team prepares for the World Cup final.

Now – exactly 50 years on – music, history and football combine into a once-in-a-lifetime event as we retell the story of that historic day England football fans will never forget. Told in real time, minute by minute, this groundbreaking experience will be broadcast live to cinemas from The SSE Arena, Wembley, yards from where the original game was played, on Saturday 30 July.

Bringing together compelling match footage, fascinating stories, appearances from football heroes, and incredible songs from 1966 – all performed live by the best of today’s artists alongside some of the legends who sang them first time around – this will be a truly unmissable live event. Don’t miss performances from a range of artists including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, James, Lemar, Squeeze, The Squires, Shaun Escoffery, The Troggs, Chris Farlowe, Reef, and the cast of hit musical ‘Sunny Afternoon’, along with appearances from sporting heroes such as Sir Bobby Charlton.

Presented by Jeremy Vine and Louise Minchin, and with more performers still to be announced, this is your chance to relive all the goals and excitement in an explosive celebration of England’s win!
