To celebrate this very special anniversary, we open 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 on the long road towards peace.
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 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.
For those who remember the 40s, the show 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.
This unmissable performance is devised and produced by Andy Eastwood, with musical direction by David Carter.
