Hits from the Blitz heading to Stratford Play House

STRATFORD Play House will be swinging along to Hits From The Blitz on Thursday November 8.

The 1940’s musical matinee show, as featured at Dame Vera Lynn’s Charity Gala Nights, boasts famous wartime tunes brought to life by singers and the Five Star Swing Band,

Chris Smith Jnr, composer and arranger for Glenn Miller’s brother Herb and the BBC Radio Big Band, said: “I’ve been brought up with this style of music as my father played trombone for Frank Sinatra on his European tours.

“The show has a great atmosphere as there’s a strong resurgence in Jazz and Swing music enjoyed by all generations these days.”

Tickets, priced £17, are available at or by calling the box office on 01789 333990. The show starts at 2.30pm.
