Raymond Gubbay presents



We’ll Meet Again – A Musical Salute to the War Years
Back By popular demand!

Following a sold-out tour in 2009, Raymond Gubbay is delighted to present a commemorative concert of timeless classics celebrating the fighting spirit of the war years.

National treasure and acclaimed actress June Whitfield is the perfect host for this special evening which takes audiences on a Sentimental Journey, recreating the fabulous forties through a nostalgic blend of swing hits and wartime chart toppers. Unforgettable numbers such as In The Mood, One O’clock Jump and The White Cliffs of Dover combine with a special Radio Days Medley in a programme that transports audiences back in time to the golden age of swing. Of course no forties concert would be complete without a good old-fashioned Singalong to favourites which include Underneath the Arches and Run Rabbit Run .

The evening’s entertainment is brought to life by a 27-piece live band and a superb line-up of artists under the command of acclaimed conductor Gavin Sutherland. Scotland’s honey-laced trio The Swingcats will perform a tribute to the much-loved Andrews Sisters whilst Ukulele player Mark Walsh evokes the inimitable George Formby with his rendition of When I’m Cleaning Windows. World Champion dancers Chris Marques and Jaclyn Spencer will dazzle with their breathtaking routines and sassy moves in numbers that include the thrilling Brazil. Finally, you can ‘get in the mood’ with special guest singer James Graeme as he performs such highlights as Sing, Sing, Sing and Goodnight Sweetheart.
