Wartime favourites onstage at the Belgrade

Coventry Editorial 6th Nov, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

NOSTALGIA will sing out from The Belgrade in a new concert that promises to capture the best of British wartime entertainment.

Spirit of the Blitz will pay tribute some of the best-loved stars who kept the troops and home front smiling through the darkest days of war.

Audiences are invited to sing along to hits like Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree, Leaning On A Lamp-Post, and of course, We’ll Meet Again led by the cast of talented musicians and perfomers.

Sandwiched between Remembrance Sunday and the anniversary of the German air raid that devastated Coventry in 1940, Spirit of the Blitz will play at the Belgrade theatre at 1.30pm on Thursday, November 13.

Tickets are £12.50 and can be purchased from the box office on 02476 553055 or online at www.belgrade.co.uk.
