Now we bring to life some of the best-loved characters of Dad’s Army in this very special show.

‘A Salute to the 1940s’ 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 Warmington on Sea were doing their very best to protect the ‘Green and Pleasant’ shores of Great Britain. This show consists additionally of recreations in vision and sound of George Formby, Vera Lynn, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and Gracie Fields, Marie Lloyd, Harry Lauder and Flanagan and Allen and a special recreation of Windsor Davies and 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 1940s 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.
