Spirit of the Blitz

8th June 2024

To mark the D-Day 80th Anniversary, 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 uplifting variety show recreates all your favourites, including Vera Lynn, George Formby, Max Miller, and Gracie Fields. A truly heart-warming afternoon of live music and laughter, accompanied by the superb Swingtones.

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, celebrating a treasured generation of beloved, humble heroes.
