We'll Meet Again: Vera Lynn, the Forces' Sweetheart
103-year-old British singer Vera Lynn's songs defined a generation. She received a Damehood, the Burma Star and was the first centenarian with a Top 10 hit in the British charts. During the current pandemic, Vera Lynn has once again emerged as a beacon of hope. The Queen quoted her iconic song: “We’ll Meet Again”, in her address to the nation. Vera Lynn herself was broadcast, urging the world to "Keep smiling and keep singing”.
Celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, learn about the singular life of this music icon, and even sing along to some of the classic songs of the 1930s and ‘40s, as Melanie Gall takes you back to a time when the world was at war and Vera Lynn's music galvanized and inspired troops overseas.
Songs include: “When Time Goes By”, “White Cliffs of Dover” and “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square”.
We’ll Meet Again: Vera Lynn, the Forces’ Sweetheart has been performed around the world, including sell-out shows in both Scotland and Australia. It was even chosen for the 2018 Royal Albert Hall Jazz series, as one of the ‘Women in Music’ shows worldwide.

"My favourite part of the performance was this 80-something woman in the front row...She knew every single word to every song and beamed the entire time." -- Elan Morgan, Regina Fringe Reviewer
