Spirit of the Blitz

Matinee Performance

SATURDAY 1ST JUNE 2024 2.30pm

SOTB 24 A3 WCT RGB low-res web

To mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day, we delve into the 1940s songbook for a tribute to the legendary stars who kept us smiling through our darkest days. Spirit of the Blitz recaptures the tenacious optimism of war-torn Britain.

Sing along to swinging hits like Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree, Bless ‘Em All, Leaning On A Lamp-Post, and of course, We’ll Meet Again.

Starring Andy Eastwood, Maggie O’Hara and Pete Lindup, this feel-good variety show recreates all your forties favourites, including Vera Lynn, George Formby, Max Miller, Bing Crosby, Anne Shelton and Gracie Fields… A truly heart-warming afternoon of live music and laughter, accompanied by the superb Matthew Bason & Phil Johnson.
For those who remember the 1940s, Spirit Of The Blitz is a trip down memory lane; for those who don’t, it’s a Sentimental Journey back through time to the glorious melodies and good clean comedy that accompanied a dogged nation’s battle for survival.

Why not bring a party to enjoy this afternoon of pure nostalgia?
