Originally planned for November 2020 to mark this very important date in Coventry's history, 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 heartwarming 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. In this landmark year for the City of Coventry, we look back on our history and remember a generation of loved ones in the uplifting style that most reflects their resilient spirit.

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