I was lucky enough to be involved in a local fundraising event recently where I met the team from Newark Patriotic Fund. The event I was at was also a memorial to a soldier who had lost his life 10 years previously in Afghanistan.

Woodhall Spa 1940s Weekend

A little late doing this post – have been so busy!

Woodhall Spa 1940s weekend in Lincolnshire was as busy as usual.  The organisers estimate they had 45,000 visitors over the weekend – which is amazing.

On the Saturday I was performing outside the Book Fayre on the Broadway where we had a really good crown some familiar faces included Gary and Dave (the photographers), Pete Hibbard and Grahame Barrass.  Following this in the afternoon we skipped across to the Inn for the evening set.

Here we were to do 2 sets of 45 minutes up to 8 pm at which point Steve Green and Damaris Jean were to continue with the evening.  There were some familiar faces in the crowd from last year and plenty of dancers around.

This year we made the decision to stay over night as our friend Helen had found a great little B & B just outside of Tattersall – we even managed to fit Jim Purdey in the car!

Sunday was another lovely day and we joined Amanda, Steve and Lucy from the 40s Homefront on the bandstand in the park.  I would have loved to have caught up with my fellow tall singer Paula Marie AKA The Vintage Vocalist but it’s impossible to get around.

Lots of highlights from the weekend but as always the flyover makes this event extra special.

See you next year folks!

Best of Thorne 1940s Weekend
Best of Thorne 1940s Weekend

A few people had been telling me about the event at Thorne and how much they enjoyed it so a few weeks ago I dropped a call into the organiser to introduce myself with a view to the 2018 event only to be called back a couple of hours later to see if I was available for Sunday 14th May.  As some of my closest ‘entertainer’ friends were also there and it being fairly local I jumped at the chance to get involved.
