Absolutely thrilled to be part of the launch event at Clumber Park for the 1940s weekend.
May 26th Nellie (the tank) is arriving at Clumber Park. Not only is this a local event for me as many of you know my Grandad, Trooper Collins, drove a Crocodile Flame Throwing Tank in World War 2 and played his part in Operation Overlord heading to France in early July 1945.
As well as this, my Nana’s birth name was Nellie although she was known as Ellen so this is a huge honour to be at Clumber Park .
I am thrilled to be back performing at Leyburn 1940s weekend which is taking place Saturday 21st July – Sunday 22nd July.
The programme of events is amazing as usual and as Major Swing is elsewhere that weekend this year I am working alongside DJ UXB and for the third time at Leyburn the hugely talented Colin Bourdiec. (more…)
