Midday Variety – Spirit of the Blitz

80th Anniversary Special Mon 9 Nov

To mark the 80th anniversary of the Coventry Blitz we open the 1940s songbook for a tribute to the stars who kept us smiling.

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. The perfect uplifting follow-up to Remembrance Day in this landmark 80th anniversary year for the City of Coventry.

This unmissable performance is devised and produced by Andy Eastwood, with musical direction by Martyn Rollings.
