CAPTURE THE MUSIC OF THE 40'S
In commemoration of Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain, Our Finest Hour will see Kevin Whately host an evening of 1940s songs on Thursday 27 September at Leeds Town Hall.
Featuring vocalist Annie Gill and the BBC Big Band, with music director Barry Forgie, Our Finest Hour looks back in the words and music of World War II, bringing together the famous speeches of Winston Churchill and the best tunes of the time from the dance halls and wireless. From Vera Lynn and Gracie Fields to the Andrews Sisters and Glenn Miller, the music of the 1940s is as well-loved today as ever.
The evening will feature iconic songs such as We’ll Meet Again, The White Cliffs of Dover and A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square. Also on the programme is some of the classic music the war inspired, including the Dam Busters March and the music from Ron Goodwin’s classic scores to Battle of Britain and 633 Squadron.
