Trumpton Comes Alive!

Saturday 5th September


A tribute to the music of Freddie Phillips.

In 1966, Gordon Murray asked Classical Guitar virtuoso Freddie Phillips to provide music and songs for his animated puppet children’s series, Camberwick Green. The result was an instant and huge success, with songs such as ‘Windy Miller’, ‘An Army Truck’ and the haunting credits theme passing into folklore.

Murray and Phillips followed with Trumpton in ’67 and Chigley in ’68, giving us the world’s most famous fire crew (Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub) and a plethora of memorable melodies, such as ‘Time Goes By (When You’re The Driver of a Train)’ and the Trumpton Clock Tower Chimes.

Still highly regarded by musicians in every genre, we pay tribute to the music of Freddie Phillips for the first time in Trumpton Comes Alive!

Featuring the talents of internationally renowned musicians Adrian Oxaal (lead Guitar of James) and Brighton Beach Boys’ Stephen Wrigley and Thomas Arnold and with vocals and specially-written narration by acclaimed comedian and singer Glen Richardson, this show played BOAT to great acclaim in 2015 and is making a much welcome return.
