eddieandthegoldtopsA fantastic family comedy with music, written and directed by Kate Bramley. With original songs and music by Jez Lowe (SONY Radio Academy Award Winner/ BBC Radio 2 Radio Ballads)  Design by Charlie Cridlan.

It’s the 1960’s and every village in England has a band determined to hit the big time.This tale follows our Eddie, a hard-working milkman in Bottledale, where local folk are inspired by the cream of the pop charts and tired of the milk-float of ordinary life, ever dreaming of stardom and success.

Eddie inherited the family milk round from his father, and has fulfilled his deathbed promise to never miss a delivery for the good people of the village. But suddenly he’s becoming a pop superstar, quite by accident! His songs are heading up the charts and if he can get there by tonight he’ll be on Top of The Pops…..

So, get ready, Eddie, go! You’re heading for the high life, with the fabulous Gold Tops behind you every step of the way! But when things take a churn for the worse, will you get back for the morning milk?
