This hit musical, inspired by the life of rock legend Marc Bolan, comes to the Rose to mark the 40th anniversary of the iconic star's untimely death.

Featuring some of the greatest rock songs ever written, 20th Century Boy tells the life story of the legendary Bolan and his band T. Rex.

This show exposes some of the myths and takes the audience on a tearful yet feel-good journey through Marc's fascinating life, cut short by a cruel twist of fate.

At his peak, Bolan was arguably the biggest rock star the UK had ever seen.

Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam and godfather of punk - Marc Bolan became a superstar and the press dubbed him "Bigger than the Beatles".

Before his tragic death in 1977, a few days short of his 30th birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans.

20th Century is a glorious celebration of glam rock at its colourful best!
