Songs That Won The War


The show revives songs that filed the airwaves during World War Two

World War Two story, Songs That Won The War, is making its way to Bromley’s Churchill Theatre on April 1.

The story begins with the D-­Day Darlings listening to the declaration of war speech on the wireless.

Following the unsettling news, the vocal harmony trio say goodbye to lifelong friend, John Adams, as he leaves to fight for the country.

Before his departure, the soldier notices an advertisement in The Times newspaper outlining an opportunity with ENSA, an agency providing entertainment to the British armed forces.

As the tale unfolds, the Darlings are at home working hard to keep the spirits of the homeland bright with their uplifting harmonies. Mr Adams later returns with the news that the trio have been waiting for; a request for them to perform in The Greatest Show on Earth, where they will have the opportunity to entertain and provide strength to the nation’s troops.

Reviving the melodies that filled the airwaves during the time, The D-­Day Darlings sing 1940s songs throughout this tale. With a patriotic energy, the show aims to take the audience on a trip down memory lane.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
