A critical study… we’ll discuss their greatest hits and more – from their initial inspirations to their contemporary 60s influences right up to their 21st-century legacy.

And, yeah, for sure, feel free to chip in – bring any Kinks memorabilia that you would like to show, share your favourite “I once saw Mick Avory in…” stories and your favourite Kinks songs.

Adam – he’s your guide – first heard You Really Got Me at the age of 13 and it ruined his life.* He once spent £4.99 on the double album Spotlight On the Kinks leaving himself short of bus fare – and trudged home 8 miles in the rain wearing leaky, suede Chelsea boots but still says (37 years later) that it was totally worth it. 

Adam’s a journalist, musician and top-flight, professionally qualified, award-winning guide. Music tours are his speciality – he’s been doing them for 15 years.

*In a good way

    An excellent tour. Adam really knows his stuff, and is a really friendly and engaging guy. Enjoyed every minute of it, and learned lots of fascinating things!
