A Salute to the 1940s - The Dad's Army Variety Show Special
Sunday, December 4th, 2016

Embassy Theatre
Skegness, United Kingdom
he Ultimate Wartime Variety Show

With a special commemoration to the artistes from both WW1 and WW2. This show has been wowing audiences. Now with the advent of a new blockbuster Dad's Army film having been released in February 2016 the show brings in a number of sketches featuring recreations of many of the cast from the evergreen show. Dad's Army remains one of the most popular situation comedies on British television. It ran for eighty episodes over nine years and a feature film, radio series and West End stage production were also commissioned. Sadly most of the cast are now no longer with us and are sorely missed by the British public. Now we bring to life some of the best loved Characters of Dad's Army in this very special christmas matinee show.

A Salute to the 1940’s is a variety show packed full of the stars who kept the nation entertained during the dark years of two world wars and of course the Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea, who were doing their very best to protect the green and pleasant shores of Great Britain. This shows consists additionally of recreations in vision and sound of George Formby, Vera Lynn, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra, Gracie Fields, Marie Lloyd, Harry Lauder and Flannigan & Allen, and a special recreation of Windsor Davies & Don Estelle singing Whispering Grass! as well as many sketches from ‘Dad's Army’ recreated.

Prepare yourself for an afternoon of pure entertainment. This show will have you on your feet singing along and waving your flags with pride. It is all held together by your very own air raid warden, Warden Braithwaite.

As soon as you walk into the room, you will be transported back into the 1940’s with flags, posters and bunting with a Christmas feel.

This is truly a memorable show and will finish in a truly patriotic finale which will have you bursting with pride.
