Doc Fest / The Go-Go’s

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a further lockdown in England, HOME will close temporarily from Thu 5 Nov 2020.  We will be contacting ticketholders affected by the new rules this week. Please bear with us as our phonelines will be busier than usual. We will also post updates on our social media channels and website. Thanks for your patience.

Formed by Belinda Carlisle and Jane Wiedlin, The Go-Go’s started out in the 1980s LA punk scene. Talent, ambition, and the coinciding birth of MTV and the music video catapulted The Go-Go’s ascent. They made history as the first all-female band to write their own songs, play their own instruments, and release a No. 1 album. As the pressure of fame grew, hard drugs, alcohol, and infighting start to take its toll.

Through a combination of candid interviews and great footage, Alison Ellwood’s spirited tribute shines a light on the band’s success – as musicians, ground-breakers and survivors.
