Dame good D-day show

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

MU­SIC lovers of yes­ter­year have the chance to rekin­dle the spirit of World War II – as Bri­tain pre­pares to mark the 70th an­niver­sary of D-Day.

And that in­domitable war­time spirit - typ­i­fied by Forces Sweet­heart Dame Vera Lynn - will be brought to life at a spe­cial trib­ute show. Lunchtime guests of the pop­u­lar mid­week show For The Good Times at Nuneaton’s La Tavola Calda restau­rant will be ser­e­naded to the sounds of the WWII en­ter­tainer who, at 97, is bring­ing out a new al­bum Vera Lynn: Na­tional Trea­sure – The Ul­ti­mate Collection.

The al­bum is be­ing re­leased to co­in­cide with the cel­e­bra­tions com­mem­o­rat­ing the D-Day land­ings of June 6, 1944.

La Tavola’s event will star Dame Vera’s mu­si­cal ‘dou­ble’ – 51-year-old Jeanette King­don – one half of a mother-and-daugh­ter act Sincerely Yours, a name taken from the mu­si­cal leg­end’s war­time ra­dio pro­gramme and first al­bum ti­tle. Jeanette, and 16-year-old daugh­ter Tif­fany, will dress up in ENSA uni­forms and treat the For The Good Times au­di­ence to the fa­mous tunes of Vera Lynn – We’ll Meet Again and The White Cliffs Of Dover.
