The Ultimate Wartime Variety Show.

With a special commemoration to the artistes from both WW1 and WW2. This show has already been wowing audiences but now, with the advent of the new blockbuster DAD’S ARMY film, the show brings in a number of sketches featuring recreations of many of the cast from that fantastic, 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 (which was built and opened here at The Forum Theatre) 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 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 2 world wars and of course the Home Guard of Warmington on Sea were doing their very best to protect the ‘Green and Pleasant’ shores of Great Britian. 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.

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