Songs of Remembrance 2017

Songs of Remembrance 2017

Details

“Songs of Remembrance” is a nostalgic and humorous commemoration to music, singers and comedians that helped win the war.

Our cast of singers, actors and dancers pay a sentimental tribute to the popular songs of the time and take the audience on a trip down Memory Lane, which includes music, comedy, sketches and poems that played such a big part in keeping up the morale of servicemen as well as everybody at home.

Music and dancing was such an important factor in keeping the spirits up of the British during both world wars. In a time of such unparalleled fear and uncertainty, music offered hope and optimism and was something that people could enjoy to remember their loved ones and those they were separated from.

The show includes the music of Vera Lynn, Flanagan and Allen, The Glenn Miller Big Band and The Andrews Sisters among others as well as special singalong sections and audience participation.

The show returns to St Georges following sell-out performances in 2016 and 2015 so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment and why not arrange a party booking to take advantage of our special offer group rate offer.
