In honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the cast of We’ll Meet Again pay special tribute to Her Majesty during an afternoon at Worthing Pavilion led by Adam Daye (Who Do you Do?) and Marilyn Hill Smith (Friday Night is Music Night) on May 22.
The afternoon celebrates the songs, solidarity and spirit which united wartime Britain and this year includes a selection of music reminiscent of the Queen’s Coronation year, when artists such as Perry Como and Frankie Laine were at the top of the charts.
Originally created in celebration of the 60th anniversary of D-Day, We’ll Meet Again is a cheerful wartime revue including tributes to some of the greatest entertainers of the era from Dame Vera Lynn and Gracie Fields to Bing Crosby.
In addition to performing George Formby favourites and classical pieces, Banjo and ukulele player Andy Eastwood will also be paying tribute to Stéphane Grappelli with a collection of swing violin melodies.
Andy says: “For those who remember, We'll Meet Again brings back memories of the stars who kept Britain smiling through her darkest days. For those who don't remember, the show is an authentic introduction to the swinging music and good clean comedy of the period.”
The afternoon will be hosted by Mervyn Francis and backed by The Martyn St James Band, performing songs ranging from We're Gonna Hang out the Washing on the Siegfried Line, We'll Meet Again and There'll Always be an England.
