Another spectacle will be coming to Wimbledon today, and it is not Andy Murray.

On the same day as the world famous Wimbledon tennis championships begin, flares and platform shoes will be on show as glam rock comes to the New Wimbledon Theatre for the opening of 20th Century Boy.

The show tells the story of T-Rex rock star Marc Bolan and includes all the hits from the 1970s including I Love to Boogie, 20th Century Boy and Get It On.

Warren Sollars, who got out his tennis shoes, is in the title role alongside Casualty’s Sue Jenkins and Luke Bailey from Waterloo Road.

20th Century Boy will run at the theatre in The Broadway from today until Friday, June 28.
