Society members will perform a two-act concert featuring popular 1940s songs to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of the war.

A two-course meal will also be served to guests at the concert, at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel on Saturday, September 12. It starts at 7.30pm.

Songs will be performed by many of the cast who performed in the society’s 2010 production of Pack Up Your Troubles. It featured a selection of songs from the 1940s – with some lively comedy and sketches - and captured the determination, fighting spirit, community spirit and courage of the wartime years.

Tickets are on sale for A 1940s Evening from the Oliver Cromwell Hotel on 01354 602890 or from Optima Estate Agents on 01354 652488.
