Songs of War

Talks - Musical Entertainment

Event Description

Let's take a look at the popular music of the Second World War, with amusing stories about those artistes who entertained troops at the centre of action and others who were left at home. How Bing Crosby finally got to play golf and host a ‘live’ radio show at the exact same time. For a classy touch of nostalgia, let Sun Jester entertain you with Bronwen’s fabulous singing, Graham’s anecdotes and a working 1934 wind up gramophone.
