Experience a time when a strong feeling of community and collective stoicism was helped along by the morale-boosting melodies that transmitted through the wireless.
The scene is set as the spotlight falls on ‘Winston Churchill’, who addresses the audience with a powerful declaration speech.

Heading Stateside to our American allies, the musical journey continues with songs from close harmony singing group, The Andrews Sisters, and the distinct swing dance orchestra that was the Glenn Miller Big Band. The grand finale builds up to an impressive climax as all of the acts come together to perform a show-stopping chorus with the impeccably choreographed Twin Swing Dancers.
